HI there,

I have a site that users roaming profiles for some of their machines. We have a policy in place that forces the users to change there passwords every x number of days. When the users change the passwords when prompted to, when they next log in the get a cannot find roaming profile error. However if the user changes the password using the manual way ie ctrl, alt, del then change password this error doesnt occur. If the user after getting this error changes the password via the manual process or by an administrator in AD the error goes away.

Has anyone come accross anything similar or have any ideas what might case the profile not to be found once passwords had been changed to to group policy enforcement.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It seems like the gpupdate command doesn't update the group policy to tell the server that the password has been changed when using the roaming profiles. Does it work if the user reboots the computer after changing their password when prompted? Also, if it inititally lets them into a basic desktop after they change the prompted password, if they open up a run command and type 'gpupdate /force' does this work?
