Hi
 
I'm studying course 70-290  and I have a question, for creating roaming profiles I did what the course said, which is creating hidden
shared folder and changing the profile field in the user properties to \\servername\profiles$\%username% and it worked fine, the problem
that I got is when trying to make that profile mandatory, as administrator on the server I couldnt have access to the users folder to change
the .dat extension and if I take ownership then the user who I made his profile roaming cant have access to his folder so how this problem
can be solved ?
 
Thank you

Hi Pure_Heart,

Take ownership, make the changes and transfer ownership back to the intended user. It's starnge that if you transfer ownership that the user can't access their own folder.

Did you give them Full Controll access on NTFS?

Cheers.

Do they have Full Control on the hidden share as well?

Make the user the owner of the folder, login as the user and see if you can change the NTUSER.DAT file?

The profiles are stored on a server, right? Keep the ntuser.dat file like it is. Login as the user, then logout. Login as administrator, change the ntuser.dat to ntuser.man, logout and then login as the user again.

Apparently the user must login once before you can change the file... Doesn't really make sense...

Let me know!

LOL!!! Sorry for creating the confusion!!!

Login on the client PC as the user. Log out again. Logon to the server as administrator, change the ntuser.dat file to ntuser.man. Logon to the client PC as the user again and then it should work... I think!

Let me know if THIS helped!

Cheers!
