Backing up and creating a new AD profile.
Posted on 2009-07-14
Hello there, I fear that one of my users active directory profile has become corrupt. The user cannot access networks drives, cannot access outlook. When he does it asks him to login to the server via an applet. When he tries to, the applet does nothing. When I enter the admin credentials, it says the link is invalid. This is not local to his machine. I can login to his profile in my office, but still get the same issues.
This just happened yesterday, there had been not alterations to his AD profile - suddenly he just cannot access network shares.
So, I need to know how to safely backup his AD Windows Server 2000 profile - and basically clone this to recreate a new one, without losing his emails mainly. I have backed up his documents and settings.
I think its something to do with his roaming profile, to be honest.
But anyway, how can I backup his profile and recreate a new one with the same settings as before.
