Hi,

How do I move the user's roaming profile from one server to another?

Please advise.

Thanks !
Edmond

Copy the users profile into the profiles folder of the new server. Make sure the new profiles folder is shared. On the server where the user logs in, change the path of the profile to
\\new_server_name\profiles\%username% from
\\old_server_name\profiles\%username%
Good luck!

I looked at the profile residing on the old server and it is giving me a 0 bytes size. The user is using roaming profile. So I am not sure what's wrong there. Please help

have you gone into user manager for domains, clicked on the user's account and click on profile tab to see the actual path of his profile? Perhaps it is not in the default location
