Roaming Profiles Naming Problem

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?

hmmm ok i am guessing you are running multiple domains ??
  In you active Directory domains and trust's create a trust to the other domains....

  and on the active directory users and computers make sure to specify the path to the profile(from reading this i am assuming that is already done )
 
 and in the local domain policy ( you have to open the group policy editer to get to this )
under the Computer config> admin templates > System > Login
and chek out the options there  
the delete cached copies of user profiles might be what you need but read the explanation first... you can also try the other options there as well

  Good Luck
