I have 2 Windows 2003 domain controllers and both are missing the Documents and Settings folder.  The profiles all exist under the c:\winnt\profiles directory, but I need to know why these two servers don't have the Documents and Settings folder.  I just built a new 2003 AD server and the folder is there.

It's probably because those servers were upgraded from NT4.  They are Domain Controllers, most likely left over from your NT4-win2k3 domain migration.  

You should raise your domain level to native. You are going to have to when you want to upgrade to windows 2008.

I'll ask the people who were here before me.  But I know we are running native mode.

Looks like that's what has happened pre-me.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
