Manditory Profile problems.

By chuck ·
The Manditory profile on Nt 4.0 server was badly configured. We want to remove the manditory and return to default but all test have failed so far.
Normally the cleint will pick up the cleint default if a new account logs on. Not on this sytem it loads half of the client and half of the server profile. Ultimately we would like to **** the Manditory out but keep as many of each accounts personnal setting as possible. Any idea's? Format and reinstall is not an option.

First, are we taling about the Default User profile?

If you are wanting to distribute a newly customized profile, you need to login as a "user" w/ policies and settings that the other users will be using. After that, you need to copy that profile to the NT4.0 server's Netlogon Directory and name it Default User. All users which authenticate through that server will receive the new Default Profile that you or your staff or both have setup.

The file that needs to be changed is ntconfig.man
I can change it back to ntconfig.pol but I cann't find anywhere what will happen if I do this. Will all users profiles revert to this as it has the newest date. I need to retain each users profilesso as not to loss their settings and configurations.
