hi i have a new windows 2003 domain setup as follows:

- master dc/dns/dhcp - (backed up)
- file server - roaming profiles located (not backed up yet)
- xp desktop

note:  originally the user domain account was able to logon via xp desktop successfully, but since ive been changing stuff on my 'file server' where the roaming user profile is located.  my xp desktop domain user account cannot logon & uses a temporary account instead!!!!!

after following some instructions i removed permissions completely & started again & have now attached some screenshots to show where im upto.!

qns1.  after making the above changes, i rebooted the master dc & file server, but my domain user account still cannot logon via xp desktop ?

Did you create the mikef folder manually?  If so, rename it mikef.old and try again.  The profile folder will only inherit the right permissions if Windows creates it as part of the logon process.

Also, you didn't show the share permissions.  Make sure they're set with Authenticate Users having Modify permissions.

hi rscottvan,

no i did not create the folder manually as it was already created in the 'aduc' profile tab.

what i did do in the end was:

- remove xp desktop from domain & removed all traces of accounts & rebooted.
- logged onto xp desktop & change computer name successfully & rebooted.

- logged onto master dc & also removed all traces from 'dns' & dhcp & restarted both services & rebooted server.

- logged onto file server and removed from domain & rebooted.
- logged back onto file server & deleted: d: drive roaming folder.
- re-installed file server & changed to: \\fileserver\profileroaming & rebooted server
- joined file server back to domain successfully
 
- logged onto master dc & changed 'mikef user domain account' to \\fileserver\profileroaming\%username%

- logged back onto xp desktop & confirmed new ip address successful
- joined xp back to domain & added 'mikef' user domain account back to domain successfully.
- restarted xp desktop
- attempted to logon onto domain with 'mikef' & still receive same issue ie 'temporary' account being used.

Those aren't the share permissions.  Right-click the folder, select Properties.  Click the Sharing tab then the Permissions button.

hi rscottvan, after removing all from domain & clearing accounts & restarting dns & dhcp.  i also removed sp2 on file server and re-installed sp1 & sp2.

not sure why, but i can now logon to my domain successfully & see my account folder appear in my file server.

so thanks for your assistance & i did save that 'url' you gave me, along with the others i have as sometimes different links provide extra clarity!!

appreciated!!
