What's up with profile folders?

By Wcoyote1 ·
Why is it that my users are having so many folder access problems? How can I solve this?

We're running a Windows Server 2008 SP2 domain. All of our user computers are Windows XP machines.

The common problem is that the user will get to the containing folder %home% but the permission set will stop there, it doesn't go all the way to their %home\username% folder. This happens with much greater frequency than it did when we were running a Server 2003 domain.

I thought it might be related to the "fast logon" problem that occasionally happened due to a saved profile on the computer. However, disabling "fast logon" via group policy isn't an acceptable alternative.

What other options are there, or is this just something we're going to have to live with until we either move to Vista or Windows 7?

how many users?

no matter whether a domain or workgroup the server has a limit to connections by the # of CALs installed. The server comes with 5 CALs. after that you need to get more....

This will impact users being able to access stuff on the server. If you have 6 users and they all make a connection to the server and you only have 5 CALs, the 6th will not be able to connect until one of the other 5 disconnect.

In order to be legal with Microsoft's policies, we have purchased CAL's for every computer attached to the network. Particularly important for AD, as every computer we have is going to contact it.
