I'm trying to get roaming profiles set up on our new SBS2003 server. Since we weren't using roaming profiles on our old NT server, I'd like to copy the profiles currently being used on each of the Windows XP Pro workstations to SBS2003. I've read through and tried applying the steps in Microsoft's Knowledge Base article 324749 (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q324749
), but continue to get the following error messages when I try copying the profile using the 'Copy to' button:
When not logged on to server
Failed to set Security on the Destination Profile. Error - Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password
When logged on to server
Failed to set Security on the Destination Profile. Error - The network path was not found
I have created all the necessary users and folders on the server, so I'm puzzled by the errors. I'm able to put the path to the server in the 'Copy profile to' section and change the 'Permitted to Use' section to the profile's user name, but get the error after choosing 'OK'. One thing this article neglects to tell is what computer you should be doing all of the steps from. I assumed and have been doing it from the workstation, but maybe this is not correct. I have tried creating the roaming profile while being logged in to the server and being logged off. The error persists regardless of logon status. I'm sure I'm just missing something easy, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
