How do I setup a non-administrator user on a domain with roaming profile and folder redirection?
Posted on 2006-05-22
I've been puzzling away at this for a while, and think at least I have narrowed down what I am doing wrong.
On my little office network, I run Small Business Server 2003. All my staff are members of DOMAIN ADMINS, and have roaming profiles. I also redirect all DOMAIN ADMIN users MY DOCUMENTS to a specific folder so we all share the same documents.
Now I want to add a couple of users to the domain and NOT give them admin privilleges. So I made them members of the DOMAIN USERS group. I setup their roaming profiles the same way I had setup all other users. I also set a specific my documents folder redirection so that DOMAIN USERS would have theirs under \\server\users\%username%\mydocs
The problem is, when I log in as one of these DOMAIN USERS, their roaming profile doesn't work, and neither does the folder redirection.
If I make them a member of DOMAIN ADMINS, their roaming profile works fine, and they get redirected to the my docs that all the other DOMAIN ADMINS get directed to.
So what am I doing wrong? Why can't I set these two simple things for these users?
