WIN2K Profiles copied incorrectly

The entire profile can be regenerated in two ways. One, copy the template profile in place of the existing user profile; two, have the user login in fresh to a computer thus creating a new profile from the existing default user profile. The steps todo this are defined below:


Copy the Template Profile Over the Existing Profile

If a template profile has been preserved for a particular department, the template profile can be copied to a user's profile directory to replace a corrupted profile.

Perform the following steps:

1.Instruct the user to log off their computer
2.Connect to the \\s-lsa-prof\profiles share.
3.Navigate to the target profile. For instance, to navigate to the kirk profile, change directories to k\kirk.
4.Select the contents of the profile and delete everything
5.Copy the template profile into this folder
6.Have the user log back into their computer
7.The user will be prompted to select between the server-based profile and the local profile.Instruct the user to select the server-based profile. Note, the new server-based profile will replace the local profile on the user's hard disk.
Copy the Local Profile to the s-lsa-prof Server

If the server-based profile is corrupted, it is possible to copy the local profile to the server. Here are the steps.


1.The CSG or DSA should log onto the user's workstation as Administrator
2.Right-mouse click on the My Computer icon and select Properties.
3.Click on the User Profiles tab
4.Highlight the local version of the User's Profile and click on Copy To...
5.At the Copy profile to field, enter the path to the user's profile and click OK. If this were user Kirk's profile, the path would be \\s-lsa-prof\profiles\k\kirk.
6.Click on OK to close the System Properties Screen.
