unable to login to w2k terminal server

By ashok_g ·
Hi

We have users with mandatory profile in winNT4 domain. We also have windows2k as a member server(terminal server serving as application server) in this same domain.

Problem here is a user with roming profile can log into terminal server butuser with man profile can not. It gives error "not able to load man profile", contact sys
admin.

They way we set up is profile direcetory end with .man extention, so that use must use man profile inorder to log in. I was just wondering if any one can help me in this matter.

Thank you

Regards
Ashok

unable to login to w2k terminal server

Haven't taken a close look at the 2000 Mandatory Profile but based on my
experience with NT 4, this is not the case.

In operation, NT4 needs to write to the NTUSER.MAN just as it would a
NTUSER.DAT hive. The "registry manager" resync's data back regularily and you can't interrupt that process without bad things happening.

The .MAN extension is just a flag that says "when the hive is unloaded, don't bother saving it back to the server". The next login will allow the
modified hive to be overwritten.

Cheers

Debbie
