Problem:

When users log in to view their browser history it does not exist. 

 

Symptoms:

The system is a non-persistent desktop. The history is redirected using 'Folder Redirection" rule

Example:

History.jpg

 

Possible Resolution(s):  

There are issues when "Folder Redirection" is used for Internet Explorer history. The workaround is to use portability and not to use folder redirection. 

If "History" shell folder is redirected using "Folder redirection"

Delete the folder redirection rule!

The next step is to configure portability setting to capture "IE" History correctly.

Step 1) Edit "Internet Explorer 9" Portability Ruleset and add this in "Filesystem Rules" section:

    • Operation: Merge
    • Folder: History
    • Path: (leave empty)

Example:

Port.jpg

Step 2) Verify that "Internet Explorer 9" Portability rule is used with "Apply Filesystem Rules"

Example:

IEPortability.jpg

Save, update Config. Download file to the \\.....netlogon\ProfileUnity folder.
