Here is the deal I have Win2003 SBS which uses Server Management. I had an issue with this user so I dejoined and rejoined the domain. So this user is in Ser Mngt but not in ADUC Active directory User and Computers. If I try to add this user back in ADUC it says user already exist. In the users properties nothing is set in Profile for PROFILE PATH OR HOME FOLDER. SO WHY IS IT STILL LOOKING FOR IT....

Did you disjoin and rejoin the computer from the domain or delete and recreate the user account? What process did you use to "disjoin" the user? Do you have a Group Policy set up to redirect all user's My Documents to a specified path?

If you deleted and recreated the user, they will have a different SID assigned to them. You will have to reset the permissions on the redirected folder (remove the entry with the SID and replace with his/her new useraccount).

I dejoined the Domain from the PC, then deleted the user from Ser mngt and ADUC, then rejoined after reboot. That is when I notice the user was in Serv Mngt but not in ADUC. I did not change the SID. To change SID do I need a Boot disk with NIC drivers and the SID change command. ( Which I hace forgotten what it is ).

He was refering to the Security Identifier for the user account not the computer.  The user must exist somewhere in Active Directory or it would not allow him to log on to recive the error above.  The error is relating to a My Documents policy set in Group Policy for the OU which is housing the users account.  If you do a search of active directory the user does not appear anywhere?

Correct is does not appear in ADUC but it does in Serv Mngt.

Enable Advanced Settings from within ADUC (view --> Advanced Features). Look in the Lost and Found and see if that user account is in there. If it is, delete it. The user account HAS to be somewhere or else the person would not be able to log in.

Do you only have one domain controller?

Check the permissions on the user share you detailed above. Make sure the user you found in MyBusiness\Users\sbsusers has permissions to at least Read (if not Modify).

Try to type that path in the Start --> Run box while logged in as yourself. (i.e. \\NAT-LAW-1\Users\richc\My Documents) and see if you can hit it.

Go to that folder by traversing the directory tree, can you double-click on it and see the contents from the server? If you can, then the path is incorrect.

Try:
\\NAT-LAW-1\Users
\\NAT-LAW-1\Users\richc
"\\NAT-LAW-1\Users\richc\My Documents" (with quotes)

Where does it fail?

Go to \\NAT-LAW-1\Users.  You should be able to get to that step.
Is there a folder called richc?

You could always create a folder called richc and give it the appropriate rights.
