Can't delete roaming profile directory. Win2K ADS, XP Clients

By rwessling ·
I'm trying to relocate the profile directories for my roaming users to another physcial location on the network. I can get the profile data to copy over with no problem, however I cannot delete the old profile directories. When attempting to do so I get an Access Denied notification. This occurs despite taking ownership of the folder / subfolders. Server is Win2K. I appreciate your input.

Are the users on the relocated location

You stated that you can get the profile data copied over but are you changing the users profile in AD to use the new profile location?

Once the you have the roaming profile storage area setup on the network, you have copied the users local profile to it, and you have specified in the user account to use the roaming profile. Log in to the local machine as the "Local" admin and delete the profile via System Properties.

That should take care of the deletion issue.

Yes, I am making the appropriate change in AD to reflect the new profile location. Unfortunatley the server where the profiles are stored is a DC. I can't log in locally. Thank you for the reply.

Better to start your own Question with information on your network and OS environment.
