Roaming profiles for volatile user accounts using NT workstation manager

NT workstation manager is great. However, until now I found no possibility to store roaming profiles for volatile
NT workstation users correctly at the file server. No problem with the location of these profile within the users home directories but with the access rights. Each time the temporarily created user gets a new internal NT ID and that´s why he has no access to its own roaming profile from an earlier session with different NT ID.
One possibility, of course , is to assign the users to
the NT administrator groups, but thats really no final solution. Another possibility would be to enable full access for everybody to the roaming profiles. No problem, because the security of the profiles is under netware control. But how to arrange this? Or is there another solution?

If you're talking about NT workstation logging into a Netware server.  1 st of course you need to enable profiles... then you need to install the policy editor and then set the profile update to automatically and then in the policy editor tell it to store the profiles on the server. You need to put it into a public place or use the %user% to specify the user directory for the profiles.
