I have deleted a user profile from \\userprofiles\username from the PDC.
On all the workstations where the user has login i 've deleted the profile also.
But when the user login ,the roaming cannot be created on the server.
The profile is created only locally.
I've tried to create the profile on the BDC but problem still there.

1) on server, check ur AD user profile settings, make sure u have typed in the roaming path

2) on workstation, right click on the "my computer" and properties, go to User Profiles, delete the one u didn't want... also check the user/password setting in control panel... delete the user account u don't need

3) delete the profiles folder in the workstation:

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME.domain

where username is the windows login name of the domain.

4) relogin or rejoin the domain with the user profile that refer in point 1)
