roaming profile error

I reinstalled Server 2003 and terminal services.  Every user seems fine except for one.  This one user, when I try to connect through remote desktop gives this error:

"Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile'.

Then it connects, but uses a temporary profile that cannot be saved for future logins.

So far I have deleted the user and recreated it, added the user to the Remote Desktop Users group, where the other users are members of, and added the user back into the list under the security setting "allow user to log on to terminal services" (or something to that effect) - same as all the other terminal service users are listed.  But I still get that error for this one user.

Ensure the user has the proper permissions and ownership to the profile and share.  You may need to update the permissions and apply to all folders and subfolders.

Hi,

Before deleting the user rename his profile folder. instead of creating new user in AD make a copy of old user which is working perfectly. so it will create a new user based on all the configuration required. use this user to login and verify.

Copying an existing user worked! Thanks for the help.
