Hello everybody!

I should have taken care of all of my profile issues BEFORE killing off my old domain, but I didn't and now I'm having trouble with the profiles I copied over.

The bulk of my issue can be explained by referencing this question:

But if you don't feel like reading that here's the question:

How do I do "this" for Windows 2000 clients?

    Hello my good friend , Have a network setup almost the same way you have yours
    I run into a similar problem last month
    I was so mad because i spent like 5 hours trying to figure it out
    OK are you ready for the answer?
    even thought it might look very easy try this
    take ownership of each profile then assign it to the user then as user sign in and take ownership
    I am very bad at explaining things but if you follow this steps it will help you a lot
    i had the same problem and after doing this it worked like a charm let me know if it helps
    The problem is that win2003 server is "secure" and even the admin needs to take ownership to change profiles

    Good luck

    I hope I'm not missing anything here, but basically you do it just the same way as in XP: You load the user's registry (ntuser.dat), change the permissions, and unload it again. Only difference is that in W2k, you have to use regedt32, not regedit.
