Roaming Profile ownership

By rodmanbrowning ·
Recently I've been having trouble with logon of roaming profiles in a native Win2K environment. The user will get the error message " Windows did not load your roming profile..... Windows did not load your profile because a server copy exist that does not haver correct security......the current user or administrator group must be the owner of the folder."

The user has full security permission in all permission options and the administrator is the owner of the folder. I see no way to grant the user ownership of his profile folder.

This has been a steadly growing problem. Users who could logon before, now cannot.

Please help,

Things to do:
1. log in as the user and take ownership of the file; quite disturbing, perturbating and unproper. (I do not recommend this one, but works)
2. Be with every user when he/she logs in and help him/her to take ownership of its profile network folder (almost impossible)
3. use the cacls feature on the server to give ownership to the corresponding user. It can be done quite easy, easier if you script it.

If you need more detailed instructions, let me know.

Good luck

The first suggestion worked for almost all problems. However there was one user that is not allowed access to the c: drive. Even when I move him to the user folder, made an administrator, blocked group policy. what now?
