Hello to the experts of whom I am definately not one!

I have a network with 4 w2k sp4 servers and 20 w2k sp4 client workstations.

I have 2 users out of 20 that continually have old profiles overwrite new ones.  These two users log onto laptops, Terminal server and their own desktop.  I wonder if this could be causing the problem, however I dont really know where to start looking.

any ideas?
Regards
David

If i understand your question, you're saying that a default profile or similar is uploading to your server(s) and overwriting these 2 users  roaming profile. Usually, the date stamp on the profile (NTUSER.DAT file ) determines which profile is older, i'd check the regioanl settings on the laptops are the same as on the servers. It can cause probs.

Yes you do undertand me correctly, however the regional options are all correct.  Do I need to check each NTUSER.dat file on each computer that the user logs onto?

The only way i quess this is happening is that a local computer is uploading a local profile with a latter date stamp on the Ntuser.dat - why i'm not sure but checking the date on the NTuser.dat file may  give you an idea which computer is responsible.

Hope this helps
