Would somebody be able to point me in the right direction? I've recently migrated (still in the process of actually) from a SBS 2003 environment to a 2008 one, with separate DC / Exchange / File Servers. *one heck of a upgrade*
Unfortunately, with the Serv2k8 setup, I'm having some problems getting Roaming profiles to work as they should.
I've followed: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc757013(WS.10).aspx
to a T. As I did when I was in the 2003 enviornment - when everything was working.
My permissions match that technet article exactly, but whenever an end user tries to log in, they're given an error that their roaming profile cannot be located, so the machines creates a local profile for them - to be deleted on logoff.
As a side note, I have the user's home directory mapped to a share on the exact same server with the same folder permissions, and those work like a champ. However, I think the reason that those are working, where the profiles fail - is that when I create a user in AD it creates the home folder at the same time, where as profiles aren't created until the user actually logs in. So, from Domain Admin permissions to make the home folder - to user permissions trying to make the profile folder...
Either or, I'm at a stump right now. And as I mentioned before, these are the exact same permissions I had on the SBS 2003 box where roaming profiles were in fact working.
Any ideas that can be thrown into the mix would be greatly appreciated.
**On that server the user share is: \\server\users While the profile share is \\server\profiles$
