    I’ve been testing the new Wyse V90LEW in our environment and I’ve run into an issue with the User Profile not saving.

    Wyse is added to the Domain, added to WDM Server and Winlog enabled to Auto with an AD Account.

    When the Write Filter is disabled, Profile gets created because of Winlog. I am then able to save shortcuts on the Desktop, configure program settings and such.

    Switch over to local admin account, verify that Desktop Shortcuts and such settings are in the user profile. Re-enabled the Write Filter.

    Upon reboot with the Write Filter Enabled and Auto logged in as the user, all such settings are lost. No Desktop shortcuts and program settings are gone.

    Anyone have an idea why this is happening?

    I’ve deployed two units already without any issues but now the next few units have been giving me issues.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    This is an expected behaviour as the XPe based unit are not stored user profiles other than the one of the inbuild administrator and user accounts.
    You can verifiy this by editing the netxclean.ini in the windowssystem32 folder.
    This tool (netxclean.exe) cleans up all other profiles. Allthough you can edit the netxclean.ini to save you profile also, I would not recommend this.
    Profiles are the main reason why Wyse is not recommending to put Thin Clients in a domain. If you store all profiles locally on the client, there is a lot of space wasted and writing to much on the flash can shorten the lifetime of the flash.
    If you have to do this, I stringly recommend to use Roaming Profiles.
