Acces denied on profile yet fully accessible

Folks

I'm having a problem with an user who gets a roaming profile error at login time with error "access denied".

however one logged in he can connect to the profile path without problem.

Not quite sure to understand what's up here.

This is a W2k3 server with XPSP2 client

Any suggestion welcome

regards

Does the user have full control over his roaming profile?

With the user lovged off, on the server make sure the share on the profiles folder allows everyone full control, and then reset permissions on the profile to be administrators and the particular user with full control, and replicate these permissions down the profile folders.

Yeah that did the trick... but I generally like to understand rather than workarounds... ;)

I totally agree with you! Since this was affecting only a single user you have to see how to spend your time and if the users was ok with downtime. In some scenarios you can sit days troubleshooting, while "starting all over" takes 1/4 of the time.
