How can I load 2003 roaming profile on a 2008 terminal server?
Posted on 2011-04-20
We have a remote XP machine that has been connecting to a Server2003 terminal server with no problems. We want to migrate this server to a Server2008 machine but during our testing, the XP user always has a message that his profile could not be loaded.
I understand that user profiles are different between 2003 and 2008 server, but we want the profile to load successfully no matter which machine he connects to. Our domain controller is Server2003 and is also where the profiles are stored. Folder redirection is also enabled.
I read that when a user logs on to Server2008 a new profile directory, username.V2, is supposed to be created but we do not see this happening. We tried to create the folder manually but that didn't help. Is it because he only logs in through Terminal Services?
What would be the easiest way to get this to work?
