I'm having an issue with the roaming profile with one of my users.  Everytime she logs on she receives an error message as follows:

WIndows cannot create profile directory.
\\servernaem\share\username.pds.
You will be logged on with a local profile only.  Changes made to the profile will not be propagated ot the server.  Contact your network adaministrator.


I originaly noticed a problem in that no roaming profile was created on the server.  I tried to replicate the issue and was unable to at my location.  I even logged on as this user, setup her profile, and logged off.  The profile was copied up to the server without a problem.  The user was still having the same issue even after the profiel was created.  All the rights apear correctly which was my initial thought but since i can log on without the problem as her this cannot be the problem.

Hi

I am presuming that the profile syncs to the local workstations hard drive, If so we have had this quite a few times on our network. The problem that i have experianced is that the local profile (on the workstation) becomes corrupted.

I have done is to delete the local profile and this has resolved the issue (on xp c:\Documents and Settings\username

Does she have appropriate permissions on the server where profiles are stored?
This surely seems like a permission problem.
