Roaming Profiles Naming Problem
Posted on 2003-11-03
How do I set up a roaming profile for an existing local user. (We'll call it XUSER).
XUSER in on local machine "SALES"
XUSER will now be joining a 2003 domain with roaming profiles.
I copied (with COPY TO...) XUSER's local profile (from the C: drive) to the share on the server.
I then deleted all local profiles in C: including XUSER's.
Logged out. Logged into the domain, and got my XUSER profile to roam back from the server into the local workstation's C: drive. So now I have a profiles called XUSER. So far so good.
Now I try to log into the LOCAL workstation ("SALES"), using the same username, hoping that it will be drawn into using the same roaming profile (XUSER). Instead, it is creating a new local profiles XUSER.SALES.
How can I make it use the profiles based on username regardless of domain, and stop the creation of a USER.DOMAIN profiles for the local user?
