comment Windows 7: Delprof replacement for deleting profiles
The real answer is "use WMI" to delete it. I even found a powershell way to do that here: stackoverflow.com/questions/3755741/… I tested this and it works, though now I need to write something up to delete users on a remote machine.

comment Windows 7: Delprof replacement for deleting profiles
I've seen this and can attest to the mixed results of it. One of the main issues is that we don't have an automatic restart policy which seems to be the trigger for the wipe.

Something like this may work, but we don't have the funding to purchase a license for it. Thanks for the info though

Turns out that Server 2003 does not have this feature but Server 2008 can do it. We found this tech doc with more details: "technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee524015(WS.10).aspx";. Our brilliant solution is to upgrade to 2008 and go from there. So this solution should work, but not on server 2003.

The "Always use classic logon" only applies when the machine is not part of a domain if the description in gpedit is correct. These are Domain computers. Thanks for the suggestion though.

It turns out that the print server is not a Domain controller but a "member server". My server tech tells me that even though the Print Operators group is on the server, it doesn't actually do anything.

Does this change a registry setting? This option is set to "not configured" in Group Policy on the Domain. Getting that changed would require justifying it to the head of IT, which is a pain.
