    I know there is a registry key to stop these terminals from automatically logging with the generic user account. I just cannot remember where they are. We need to add these terminals to our domain so will adding them wipe out the auto log in?

    hold shift down and log out, then you can login as admin and join to domain. Autologin will stop once you do this. Post back how you do, because I was able to join ours to the domain, but once a domain user logs out and back in again, they get a temporary profile. I’m trying to figure out how to stop this.

    Does anyone know the proper way to have a domain user log into a thin client?

    My recommendation is to never ever add the devices to a domain. There are reasons to do it but typically it is not necessary.

    As soon as you are joing the device to a domain, the autologon process is stopped and user can login using their own accounts.

    No profiles are saved locally. So you have to have working roaming profiles (one reason for not joining).

    Ok, thanks Conf – Can profiles be saved to the ramdisk? Or do they have to be roaming?

    Ramdisk is RAM. So everything stored there is deleted on reboot.

    Ok that’s a big DUH on my part. Thanks. What’s the C: drive – SD card?

    UPDATE – I got a lead over on the wyse formums

    http://community.wyse.com/forum/showthread.php?6242-Z90D7-Losing-local-profile

    I was told to use the “NetXClean – NetXpress Cleanup Utility” and set the “CleanProfiles” to “0”.

    I’ll try that and get back. I see in the ini file there’s also a “SaveDynamicProfiles” setting… wonder what that does.

    If all else fails I will remove them from the domain as you suggest… or maybe I’ll setup roaming profiles. I’ve done that before and it’s not too much of a bugger
