Hello,

This is driving me potty! At work I have a single Win2k Adv Server running DNS, Active Directory and IIS 5.0. There are 50 Clients on the LAN, 600+ Users and a ADSL Router Running DHCP.

Recently, I had an unfortunate run in with a worm. It rendered the server inaccessible (even using Admin login). Well away I had to format the system partition and reinstall win 2k server again. But I left the roaming profiles and associated files on another partition (thank god!). I reinstalled the server + DNS + AD and made new group policy objects for my users. Now my problems lie with the roaming profiles.

When a User logs in on any of the clients, it is simply pot luck whether the profile works or not. I have added new directories and users (and they work fine) so the problem lies with the old profiles that were on the server. The old profiles do not follow the new group poilcies although I have made new security groups and associtated them with the GPO's. The new security groups were associated with the users.

Also everybody's inbox's in outlook express have been wiped! I don't know how that happened.

Help me please!
