Roaming profiles not updating server 2016

roaming profiles not updating server 2016-24

Microsoft has several references on this topic: The Microsoft Exchange Server Resource Kit includes a utility that works with to create profiles.

If you need to allow Outlook or Exchange users to log on at any computer to get their mail, but don't have roving profiles implemented, these tools are designed to help: (They can help with roving profiles, too, of course.) If you have people moving around and don't want sample items created in their mailbox each time they use a new profile with Outlook 97, try adding this string value to your registry (if it isn't there already): Replace xx with the correct value for your version of Office.If you want to force certain other settings -- those normally set in Tools | Options -- you need to use the System Policy Editor to create a policy file with your choices in it.What if you don't have Windows NT Server, but several people need to use the same computer?Specifically (and I can imagine Ben Whitmore shuddering here), it’s a Jet Blue database that lives in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Tile Data Layer\Database\*.Now I understand why they maybe wanted to put this in %LOCALAPPDATA% – imagine if you pinned an item to Start that wasn’t installed on the machine, you’d get a corrupted or blank entry.Standard roaming profiles Unlike the IE10 Cookies and History debacle, where I started with UEM products and finally got around to testing standard roaming profiles, let’s start with roaming profiles this time!

After all, this is Microsoft’s recommended-ish way of doing stuff – even though most of you probably want the advanced features of UEM, it makes sense to start this way.

Outlook 2000 adds a Profile Wizard that you can use to clone Outlook settings from one user's machine and distribute them to others. The Office Custom Installation Wizard handles the MAPI profile settings.

Also see: Note that the profile generation tools only handle the user's MAPI profile.

But is it so much of a jump to think that, in an enterprise environment with standard builds, that we might want users to pin an Outlook and intranet shortcut to Start and have it roam with them to a different machine?

But hey, that’s why we’ve got the whole UEM environment, right?

You'll set the value to "False" (without the quotes).
