Roaming Profile problem
Posted on 2008-06-12
I have a network of XP clients that log on to a Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition server. All clients have roaming profiles.
There was a problem recently in that one of my users had too much data within his profile and had logged off causing it all to be written back to the server but this caused extremely low diskspace on the server. To get around this, I took ownership of the profile folder on the server with the server administrator account so that I could remove the user folders and files that were too large.
Unfortunately, since this, when the user logs on he gets an error message to say "your roaming profile is not available / logged on with the locally stored profile / DETAIL - access is denied etc".
I have tried to browse to the users profile folder on the server from his local login on the client PC but I get the message "<<server>>\profiles\<<username>> is not accessible....Access is denied".
I have also checked the user profile settings from the local machine which says Name = <<user>> / Size = 838MB / Type = Roaming / Status = Local.
From the server, I have selected the problem profile folder and taken ownership of it and its subs with the username that is required. Unfortunately this has not worked.
Please will someone help me to work out how to get this guys roaming profile working again?
