Hi,

I would like to configure roaming profiles for Windows 2008 R2.

Now I did this on \\mydomain.local\dfs\profiles then in the user-profile-path \\mydomain.local\dfs\%userprofile%.

Userprofile is created user.V2. However, when I try to see the profile (content) on the server itself (share), I get the error permission denied, security shows "Unable to display current owner." I can take ownership but then the profile isn't synced anymore (error during sync of your profile).

Shut I place the profile in \\mydomain.local\netlogon instead?

Please advise.
I'd also like to know where folder redirection/xenapp profiles come in.

Please advise.

Just delete the .v2 in the address bar and you should be able to view the files.

Why is that? I would like to understand the concept, not only view these files,  and set it up correctly.

The .V2 is to used isolate roaming user profiles for windows vista (and later) from roaming user profiles created by previous operating systems such as xp and earlier.

Sorry I'm not familar with Xenapp so I cant address the 2nd part of your question.
