Roaming Profile

By Geronomo ·
I am trying to use a roaming profile on a user and every time he logs on he
gets the local profile I have checked that the roaming profile is set up properly and have it pointed to the UNC where the profile resides. I have even blown away the localprofile and it still loads with a local default
profile. what am i doing wrong ?

Roaming Profile

by spiceman In reply to Roaming Profile

I hope you are using a corrent User Profile Path:

Used to enter a network path when enabling a roaming or mandatory user profile for a selected user.
The path you enter follows the form: \\server name\profiles folder name\user name. For example,\\puma\profiles\jeffho.
When assigning a mandatory user profile, open System in Control Panel to the User Profiles tab and copy a preconfigured user profile to the user profile path location. Then, rename the NTUser.dat file in the user profile as NTUser.man.
Remember that you need to create a share on the appropriate server, grant Full Control to Everyone, and type the full path in User Profile Path, such as:

\\airedale\profiles\cristalw

If you did do this and the problem is still occuring then check that the profile is actually being created. If it is not being created than re-install the latest service pack.

Good luck.
Kamal

You may want to check on the client machine to see if the user account is a local or roaming.

Right click My Computer --> User Profiles Tab

this is for NT workstation. Dunno about W2K

Hope this helps.
