Active Directory
6 Comments1 Solution357 ViewsLast Modified:

I have a client who have Windows 2008 active directory running across two sites linked via a 10Mbit pipe.

The Domain Controllers within seperate sites in AD.

They store all their data on DFS shared (home directories, profiles, shared data) and this replicates site to site.

All users access DFS using the namespace \\Domain Name\DFS Namespace.

My issue is when a user changes their password because it has expired, their profile does not load from the DFS name space, looks like it loads the default profile and not the user profile.

Waiting 10 minutes resolvs this?
