    NT profiles copied to novell vol unexpectedly

    This is a strange issue. We have a few w2k pc's that copy favorites,
    application data, desktop, cookies, and start menu automatically the user's
    home directory on the novell server. It is like they have roaming profiles
    in an nt domain. The problem is we can not find what is making this occur
    and this is filing up the sys volume as their user directories are located
    there. They all have at least 4.90 for a client.

    Any ideas? Anyone seen this behavior before?

    Roaming profiles are not a NT Domain thing. If you enable roaming
    profiles, this is what will happen in a Netware environment.

    but connecting in and looking at the profiles...they show local.
    I saw this behavior years ago on a 98se and never figured it out. Replaced
    the machine and it never happened
    again.

    Any registry hacks to look for?
