Customized Login profile differs on different workstations on the NIS network

I have a customized workspace menu that previous loaded correctly, no matter what workstation  I log on to on the network.  Now, I get either the defaut workpace menu that came with initial installation or my customize workspace menu.  It really depends on which workstaion I log onto.  All workstations are Ultra 5 or SunBlade 100 and they are all on a NIS network.  I checked my .dt file and everything seems to be fine.  Where should check to stabilize my personal profile?  Others have logged on to the workstaitions with no problems.

Is your home dir mounted from the same file server?

Please do a test for me:

1. login to a Sun box and then logout, try to remember your desktop settings.

2. Go to another sun box, in the GUI login script, check the followings before login
    to the box:
    Click on Options -> Sessions, make sure is set to use "User's Last Desktop"
    then login
   you should have the same desktop as your when you logout from the 1st Sun
3. repeat step 2, and try it on another Sun box, it should have no problem. (You just
   need to be sure the desktop, eg CDE is installed on all the Sun boxes).

   If you failed on step, do the followings and try again:
   mv .dt
   mv .kde
   mv .desksetdefaults

   then repeat step 1-3, see if it work.

look in the .dt/errorlog & .dt/startlog for clues
