For roaming profiles you usually want to create a UNC path.   You can also make it easy by putting an environmental variable called osver and put the UNC path in there,  then point to that varialbe in ad. Example %osver%\username

that would pull up the profile.

I'm slightly confused, I set up the UNC path but it still loaded the profile on C:
the unc path is \\servername\profiles\user1
how do use this osver?

it will always copy to C:\ when you first login into that server.  Then when you logoff it writes it back to the UNC path you have specified.
