Roaming profiles - Win2k3 / Win7
Posted on 2011-04-28
Trying to get roaming profiles and document redirection running on our domain, and having some issues. Here's my setup so far:
Windows 2003 AD backend. Have created a share on a file server as follows:
\\SERVER\Profiles. Profiles directory shared Everyone FC with NTFS set to Everyone R.
Created a subdir matching a user name, Bill, and set NTFS owner to the user and NTFS with FC.
Set Profile path under the users AD account as \\SERVER\Profiles\Bill.
At this point I logged out and back in of Bills workstation twice, at the second logoff the logoff time went from immediate to taking 3-4 minutes which I took as a good sign that the roaming profile was being written to the share. However when I checked \\SERVER\Profiles\Bill there is no data there and when I login as Bill on another computer he gets a local profile.
The desktops are all Windows 7 Pro / SP1. I will move on to setting up document redirection once I get roaming profiles to function, any pointers guys?
