We are in a Citrix 6.5 environment, using CRM2013 SP1 Rollup1. I was wondering is anyone successfully able to redirect the c:\xxusers\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSCRM\Client cache folder and it's files .sdf? Since we have many presentation servers, and they get rebooted each night the user may or may not login back to the same server on the same day so the files are always having to be regenerated. So what happens is the user log's in, Opens outlook and it's says oh I need to created this local appdata cache folder for the user, and it does. (I believe this is where we are seeing Outlook just stuck on the loading screen for 30-45 seconds saying "loading profile" page while it's doing this background process.) So the cache files are then created for the user around 30Mb's worth on the local C:\drive. Since these folders apparently can't be redirected to a network share (from reading other articles about "AppData Local" best policies. How could we accomplish this? Or how do we tell the Outlook CRM configuration to put the cache files someplace else on the network so they don't need to be recreated. Maybe a config file or registry setup someplace? I've read some articles regarding SQL CE configuration, but I believe that was only necessary for CRM 2011 Rollup 14 and below, and I don't see any information about folder redirection locations. (http://support2.microsoft.com/kb/2616319) So I would assume that would not be the case in our situation, since we are on CRM 2011.
Thank you for you post , for Folder redirection check out the link technet.microsoft.com/.../cc732275.aspx
I had this problem a while ago, this is how i solved it, we use terminal servers:
Create a batch that copy's the files at logon and logoff.
xcopy /e /s /y "%homeshare%\Mijn Documenten\MSCRM\*.*" "%userprofile%\appdata\local\microsoft\MSCRM"
mkdir "%homeshare%\Mijn Documenten\MSCRM"
xcopy /e /s /y "%userprofile%\appdata\local\microsoft\MSCRM\*.*" "%homeshare%\Mijn Documenten\MSCRM"
Use group policy for running this script
Hope this will solve it.
Wondering how you resolved this. I'm toying with the idea of redirecting the entire AppData/Local folder to a network share via a reg key deployed via group policy. A terrible workaround but necessary nonetheless.
Turns out we're using the logon/off scripts suggested by Lars and it seems to be working thus far.
