Roaming Profiles not being created on logoff/logon

I've setup roaming profiles for one user.
Doesn't seem to work, no matter how many times I logoff or on it's just not being created.

What should I look at first, the user has full access to the share that holds the roaming profile.

It still should have overwritten the settings and moved the local profile to a roaming profile:

Not sure where you have gone wrong.

To create roaming profiles - edit the user in Active Directory Users and Computers, configure the Profile tab, ensure that the profile share exists and permissions are granted. Ensure that the settings have replicated round to all DC's, log off the client, logon the client and then logoff again - this should create the roaming profile.

If the profile is not created then this could be down to permissions problems or replication delays.

The settings have replicated.
The user has permissions to the share.

I've logged on and off untold times.
Is there anything else?

Turns out the machine was set to use local profiles!

It is normally that simple and if it does not work it is usually due to a permissions, share not being available problem.

There maybe a Group Policy that is overwriting this, try runnin Resultant Set of Policy to check what is applying to the user:
