Enable Path to user store.


Specify the UNC path to the folder share. An example path is below:



Disable Active write back. This places additional load on the file server and is only needed if users login to multiple machines concurrently and need mid-session changes to be saved. Note: if you don’t configure this, it is enabled by default.


Under the Advanced Settings node, enable the setting Process Internet cookie files on logoff.
