Roaming Profiles


I have setup roaming profiles for about 50 users and have just started the process of adding computers to the domain i have also started loggin theses users on to there relavant machines.

now the profile is created with no problem on the server but once i then log the users off and log back on again we get the following error.

event id1525

Windows has detected that Offline Caching is enabled on the Roaming Profile share - to avoid potential profile corruption, Offline Caching must be disabled on shares where roaming user profiles are stored.

event id 1509
Windows cannot copy file \\Golden\Profiles\lferreday\ to location C:\Documents and Settings\lferreday\. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.

DETAIL - The specified server cannot perform the requested operation

event id 1511
Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.

theses systems are Fujitsu Laptops and desktops.

now i have checked the permission on the server and the user in question has the following rights

Profiles folder is shared and the share permission are FC everyone

NTFS permission are administrator

Administrator FC
Creater Owner special
System FC
Users read exec

The permissions applied to the users profiles folder are users has full control and administrator has full control due to a group policy which i have applied. i orignally thought this was the problem and removed but problem still occurs.

offline caching was enabled on the share and i have removed this. still getting problems when the users try to logon?

What OS are you using on the server and the client PC?
Have you tried to disable the Web Client service on the server? If you haven't, it’s well worth trying.

where do i turn the the web service off?
Click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Services. Find the 'Web client service' right click and choose stop.
This will syop the service. Then logon the try your roaming profiles.

SP 1 on windows 2003
XP clients SP 2

yes this update has been installed
Try this one.

Start -> Run -> mmc
Then browes to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Network, make sure every thing is on "Not configured"

you have to do this on their computer first.

Then go to the server and look at GPO and check the group policy over there, you might made a mistake on GPO.

Also the main part that you have to look for is:

in your Active directory, when you click on Profile, how is it, it should be:

Profile Path:

Home Folder:
you may connect it to one of your drives as:  \\Server01\Users$\Test-User

Profiles, permisions has to be:
Name of the User

Users (Home folder) it has to be:
Name of the user

I hope these info help you, let me know if you have any questions.
