Upon logon to Windows Server 2003 you are presented with an error:
(1) "Windows cannot copy file \\indianapolis\jgaugler\termprofile\Start Menu\Programs\Internet Explorer.lnk to location C:\Documents and Settings\"USERNAME"\Start Menu\Programs\Internet Explorer.lnk. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.
 DETAIL - The network path was not found. "

Followed By:
(2) "Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off."

These two messages show up in the event log as event ID's: (1) 1509 and (2) 1511.

On a similar server you are able to log on with these roaming profiles fine and you can also navigate to the folder where roaming profiles are located from the server that is giving me the error messages. I checked local security policies, security settings and connectivity issues. I also removed the copy of the local profile to under Docs and Settings but that was also unsucessful.

Is there anything that I am missing?
