Roaming Profiles problem

I have a Win 2003 Std Server using W2K Workstations.   I have set up a shared to everyone directory on the Server called RoamingProfiles.  Within that I have users listed (as per AD) with security set to full control on the user and administrator(s).  I have put the path \\Server\RoamingProfiles\username in the AD User Profile.  On the workstations I have ensured that the user profile is set to Roaming and have also been to User Profiles and done a Copy To Server.  However with all that done, the workstation is not syncing with the server at all - no errors just no profile being copied to/from.

User Profiles Troubleshooting
The first troubleshooting step should be to examine the Application event log on the client computer, and determine the error.
If this is a roaming profile, be sure to check for the correct permissions (see Security Considerations when Configuring Roaming User Profiles for the required permissions) - one of the most common causes of roaming user profile errors is incorrect permissions on the profile share.

In addition to logging events in the Application Event log, User Profiles can provide a detailed log to aid troubleshooting.

To create a detailed log file for user profiles:
1. Start regedit and locate the following path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

2. Create a new value called UserEnvDebugLevel as a REG_DWORD, and set the value to 30002 in hexadecimal format.
The log file can be found at: %windir%\debug\usermode\userenv.log
