Background Upload Of A Roaming User Profile's Registry File While User Is Logged On

(Applies only to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2)

Sets the schedule for background uploading of a roaming user profile's registry file (Ntuser. dat). This setting will upload only the user profile's registry file (other user data will not be uploaded) and will upload it only if the user is logged on. Only the registry file of a roaming user profile will be uploaded—regular profiles will not be affected. This policy does not stop the roaming user profile's registry file from being uploaded when the user logs off.

If this setting is disabled or not configured, the registry file for a roaming user profile will not be uploaded in the background while the user is logged on.

To use this setting, first choose which scheduling method to

If Run At Set Interval is chosen, an interval must be set with a value ranging from 1 to 720 hours. Once set, the profile's registry file will be uploaded at the specified interval after the user logs on. For example, if the value is 6 hours and a user logs on at 6:00 A .M. and is still logged on at 12:00 P M , her registry file will be uploaded at that time Further, if she is still logged on at 6 P M , it will upload then as well and then again every 6 hours until logoff. The next time the user logs on, the timer will start again, so the registry file will upload 6 hours later (in this example).

If Run At Specified Time Of Day is chosen, then a time of day must be specified. Once set, the registry hive will be uploaded at that same time every day, assuming the user is logged on at that time

Delete User Profiles Older Than A Specified Number Of Days On System Restart

(Applies to Windows Vista or later versions)

Allows administrators to delete user profiles automatically on system restart if the profiles have not been used within a specified number of days .

Enabling this policy setting causes the User Profile Service to delete all user profiles on the computer automatically upon reboot that have not been used within the specified number of days on the next system restart.

Do Not Forcefully Unload The Users Registry At User Logoff

(Applies to Windows Vista or later versions)

Allows administrators to prevent Windows Vista from forcefully unloading the user's registry at user logoff. (By default, Windows Vista will always unload the user's registry even if there are open handles to per-user registry keys during user logoff )

Enabling this policy setting causes Windows Vista not to forcefully unload the user's registry during logoff, but instead to unload the registry when all open handles to per-user registry keys have been closed.

Disabling this policy setting or leaving it Not Configured causes Windows Vista to always unload the user's registry at logoff even if there are open handles to per-user registry keys during user logoff

Do not enable this policy by default because it may prevent users from getting updated versions of their roaming user profiles . Instead, only enable this policy when you are experiencing application compatibility issues related to unloading the user's registry

Set Maximum Wait Time For The Network If A User Has A Roaming User Profile Or Remote Home Directory

(Applies to Windows Vista or later versions)

Allows administrators to specify how long Windows Vista should wait for the network to become available if the user has a roaming user profile or remote Home directory and the network is currently unavailable . (By default, when the user has a roaming user profile or a remote Home directory, Windows Vista waits 30 seconds for the network to become available when the user logs on to the computer.) If the network is still unavailable after the maximum wait time expires, Windows Vista continues the logon for the user without a network connection, but the user's roaming profile will not synchronize with the server, nor will the remote Home directory be used for the logon session. However, if the network does become available before the maximum wait time expires, Windows Vista proceeds immediately with the user logon. (Windows Vista will not wait if the physical network connection is unavailable on the computer—for example, if the media is disconnected.)

Enabling this policy setting causes Windows Vista to wait for the network to become available up to the maximum wait time specified in this policy setting. (Specifying a value to zero will cause Windows Vista to proceed without waiting for the network.)

Disabling this policy setting or leaving it Not Configured causes Windows Vista to wait for the network for a maximum of 30 seconds

You should enable this policy setting in scenarios in which the network takes longer to initialize than is typical—for example, when using a wireless network.

Set Roaming Profile Path For All Users Logging Onto This Computer

(Applies to Windows Vista or later versions)

Allows administrators to specify whether Windows Vista should use the specified network path (usually \\Computername\Sharename\%UserName%) as the roaming user profile path for all users logging on to the computer. (If %UserName% is not specified, all users logging on to the computer will use the same roaming profile folder specified in the policy )

Enabling this policy setting causes all users logging on to the computer to use the specified roaming profile path.

Disabling this policy setting or leaving it Not Configured causes users logging on to the computer to use their local profile or standard roaming user profile
