Roaming profile and Group policy conflict
Posted on 2003-03-28
I implemented a profile server as per normal. (shares etc)
Created a template account and created a template profile, then copied profile folder to profile server.
I then modified template account profile path to point to new profile location for roaming.
I also implented sub-container and applied group policy to restric desktop.
Everything works just fine with the template account.
However, if I copy the template account, then copy the template folder and rename it and specify the profile path for the new account, i get the sortcuts in the profile but the wall paper disappears and the group policys is ignored (no longer hides icons on desktop). everything is identical to template account, the only difference is renamed and copied profile folder and made sure account, profile paths and permissions are all cool.
when the new (copied) account logs in, the roaming profile apears momentarily then wall paper disapears, when I log out, the roaming profile background appears again then logs off. while logged in , i get partial roaming profile (shortcuts etc) and no group policy.
Any ideas anyone ??
