Roaming profiles and printing.

By grunseit ·
I have a W2K server which has W98 and XP Professional clients.
The W98 clients are controlled by system policies and config.pol
The XP machines say the can't find the roaming profile and worse still if I load a network printer , using printer wizard next logon the printer has gone.
My main problem is a) how to get the printer to stay at every login and why won't roaming profiles work , they are directed to a folder on the server to which they have modify rights.

Do you set the roaming profile correctly?
Have you set any folder redirection in the user GPO?

In your case is that when you login to your client using roaming profile user, you are using a local profile and it will not save any setting once you log out.

My way, set the roaming profile in the user GPO object. Then from the client machine side, add a network ID (Domain user) . Normally will need to restart. Login as client administrator first then log out and login back as domain user.

Then only i apply user setting from the client machine like what you did. Printer, Outlook and Desktop.
