Hi,

I need to get roaming profiles start working. I have Windows 7 pro clients in a Server2003 AD.

With permissions of the share where the profiles should be saved there are no problems. The Clients create their folder %username%.v2 in this shared folder. But this user-folder stays empty.
From client i can access this folder via share and create files in it.
Under System-Properties it says in userprofiles that my profile would be a roaming profile with status "roaming".

I don´t get it...

There are no errors in eventview i should mention too. There is also no message that a temporary profile is loaded. The changes i make on one machine are saved (somewhere) and on another machine there will be a new profile created on first logon.
