Hello i would like to ask a question about a problem that i have in ad of a customer. there are 2 vms in a debian linux server running through virtual box. The one is active directory of the group and after a user had a virus from email in her pc we are facing a serious problem. When we create any new user and try to login we have this error message "Windows did not load your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with your local profile.
Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server when you logoff.
Windows did not load your profile because a server copy
of the profile folder already exists that does not have the correct
security. Either the current user or the Administrator's group must be the owner or
the folder. Contact your network administrator."
I tried any possible solution even one i found in the forum but no result. The old profiles login normally the new not at all. The servers are both 2003 and the clients are windows xp pro. Any ideas please its important

Make sure the group of the new users you are trying to log in with have full rights on the profiles directory on 2003 server.  Both on security tab and sharing tab.

Well actually what i saw is that when i create a profile by copy from another, (previous one) creates a folder of profile and a folder of documents automatically andi log in normally by some gpo rules but when i try to create manually I have the problem I told you.

You're not supposed to create one manually, ACLs will prevent the user from modifying files.
