I Would like the following

a mandatory profile on my server wich is used bij different users. so \\SERVER\DFS\PROFILES\MANDATORYSTUDENT.V2 must be used by more then one user.

I've searched a lot and found a lot of suggestions but non of them are working. I face the problem that i cannot copy a created profile becease the button COPY TO is greyed out.

Windows 7 needs to have owner ship permission to the profile folder. how do i do this? multiple users are using the same share. only one can have the owner ship.

What is te procedure to make this mandatory profile wich can be used by more then one user?

I have looked at the Managing Roaming User Data Deployment Guidel doc from Microsoft. But i cannot copy the profile to an other location because the button is greyed out. I've found a solution for this in a tool wich makes this button available but then it coppies the current loged in profile instead of the profile i have created to copy.

Is it uberhaupt possible to have one profile for multiple users via one share?
