What is happening? The Roaming Profile service will be terminated. All remaining roaming profile attributes will be removed for all staff working in the Academic Support departments.

When is this happening? Thursday, December 22.

What is the impact?

·         Clients that only work on a single workstation will not notice any changes other than faster logon and logoff times.

·         Clients that roam between IST managed workstations will not notice any changes because User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) has been mirroring the profile contents of roaming profiles.

·         Clients that logon to a workstation that is not managed by IST and has not had UE-V applied may notice that some user application attributes (settings) or configurations are not available.

·         Overall impact should be minimal.

Has this been tested? Profile attributes have already been removed (or were never applied) from over half of Academic Support clients with no negative impacts reported.

Questions or concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca> or ext. 44357.
