Can't access Roaming Profiles folders as an administrator
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have an issue that I haven't really found a direct answer to yet. I have a server 2008 setup with roaming profiles but I cannot access the profile folders on the server with the administrator, only the user can access the folder. This is obviously an issue when tryign to backup the roaming folders. If I take ownership of the folder then it prevents the user from accessing it when they log on and gives them a temporary profile. I added administrator priviges in group policy for roaming profiles but they are currently using their systems. I figured Id' try it tonight once they logged off but I'm not holding out hope since the folders are already created. Even after gpuopdate /force I dont' have access. Do I need to recreate the roaming folders now that the GPO has changed? Am I doing something wrong?
This site has helped me so many times I love it, and as always thanks in advance!
