    I have a user that when he signs into the Novell network there is a new profile created in the Winnt/profiles folder. It renames his old profile and creates the new one. This causes problems with the icons on his desktop. I am not sure if this is a Novell problem or an NT problem.

      It sound like a harddrive problem.
      first download the diagnostics software from the harddrive manufactor. If all checks okay you should wipe the drive and re-installed the OS and software.

      I have the same problem on 2 or 3 PC and I have the rebuild them to stop this problem.

      good luck

        Sorry it took so long to close this but I was trying many other ways to correct this problem without the re-install. Nothing else worked.
        Thanks

      This happens when the NT Reqistry Size Limit has been exceeded. Check out article 189119 at

      NT creates a profile for each user and each domain. The computer itself can be a domain.
      When a computer is removed from the server domain and then added again, NT will create another new profile. This doesnot have to do with logon. SO if Novell is removing and then adding back the computer to the domain, this could happen. If this is the only person logging on to this machine, Use the all users folder for his icons etc.

        We have multiple users on some of the machines so I had to keep the seperate folders.
        Thanks
