My users are using romaing profiles in a Windows Server 2008 AD enviroment. Suddenly, some users start reporting that they could not access their files. In my investigation I noticed that it was happening only to some files under the My Documents folders, not all of them are inaccesible. If I try to take ownership of the file it fails with the following error message "Unable to set new owner on "file". Access is denied." Is there is any way that I could force to take ownership of those files.?

In other cases I can take ownership, open the file to edit it but when I am going to save it will not let me save any changes even when I am the owner of the file,

Any ideas?

The file is propably opened/locked.
See if it's listed in Computer Manager->Shared Folders->Open Files, and right-click the file->Close Open File

The problem was solved by removing the attached lun to the actual server and reattaching it to the new server that is going to handle the lun.
