Roaming Profiles Not Working

The Server is running Windows Server 2003 Release 1.  I updated the User Accounts (Prolife Tab)
to enter a path to a 'Profiles' Folder alomg with the User ID Logon Name.  The User list appears in the -Control Panel/Advanced/User Profile window,  but they are shown as 'Type' "Local' and not 'Roaming'! The 'Change Type' button does not allow me to switch from 'Local' to 'Roaming'.  What did I do wrong?

Have you got the profile shares permissions setup correctly? This could be a reason why the profile isnt being converted to roaming.

Please take a look here for additional info.

Dear MrManderson,  and Barca;

I followed the procedures that werer detailed in http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Profile-Folder-Redirection-Windows-Server-2003.html

Several User ID are shwning  User Profile Type as 'Roaming', but others are not.  I have not rebooted the Server. I plan to do that on Saturday morning. Hopefully, that will establish the remaing User Profilesd as Roaming.

If that works, I'll Post both commenta as ' Accepte Solutions'!.  My Fingers are crossed!!

The user profile type 'Local' and 'Roaming' depends upon if the user has logged onto that machine since the profile paths have been put in play. For instance if user1 logged onto machine1 before roaming was setup and hasnt logged in since it will still show local. however if user1 logs into machine1 his local profile is updated to 'roaming' so in order for the users profile to show up as roaming on all machines he has to log into them to update his local profile should it have been created.
