98 home directories on an NT server

By Hameiri ·
I am setting up an NT network with Windows NT 4.0 SP 4 server and Windows 98 SE workstations.

I want to set up roaming profiles. I know they should go into the server home directory, but I can't seem to get the home directory in Domain Manager for Users to actually map the drive.

Is it possible that even though the drive isn't mapped, 98 still know this is it's server home directory? Or should I upgrade to SP 5?

98 home directories on an NT server

Could it be something simple like in User Manager for Domains, Profiles button; checking the radio button which says 'Connect to network share' rather than the one which 'connects to local drive'?
I do not think that service pack is the problem, asI have been doing this since SP1.

Another problem could be making sure that the directory exists and is shared and there are no typos in the path \\server\share. (I trust you are using the UNC path)

Although you can map a drive for some things I think that you will have much better luck if you use the UNC name for this. It goes like so ...
\\servername\foldername\filename

This naming will work when a workstation is loading and doesn't know the mapping you have setup yet.

Good luck on your project!!!

I'm using UNC in User Manager for Domains in the Connect to Radio Button. Thanks anyway.
