User Profiles moved from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 not working

I have Installed a new SBS 2008 server and have copied the old roaming profiles from sbs 2003  onto new server. Setup the path under profiles in AD but when I logon to workstations the profiles are not loaded. Any ideas ?

Just basic permissions are probably missing.  You simply copied these profiles, and as SBS uses single-domains only, then the users on the new domain on SBS08 can't see the permissions of the old SBS03 accounts.  Try this ... create a user folder for a SBS08 domain account, then copy the files into their from the old SBS03 account.  Verify on all the files that the perms are owned by the new 08 user (or even force replicate permissions to children) and then try loggin on as the 08 user again to see if it's taken it.
have you migrated to SBS 2008?

If so then =>
Have you checked the new profile path on each users settings and how did you copy the profile?

Yep, checked all this but didn't have time to dig deeper , they were old profiles and too big so ended up re-creating. Time consuming but better at the end of the day.
