roaming profile after remove metadata

I recently installed a new server running server 2008R2 on the network.  It is a small network with a very sick server 2003 running.  The FSMO all transferred as expected, and all domain users [roaming domain profiles worked fine.

I was not able to demote the old server using dcpromo.  I had to use dcpromo /forceremoval.

I ran the metadata cleanup processes and all seemed to go well.

I now have an issue when logging on to the new server [old one is not on line] with the users on their workstations.  The Roaming Profile cannot be found and a comment that "possible attempt to compromise" shows up in the User profile error.

The domain has always been name.url.com, but the user was NAME\User.  I get the same results using name.url.com\User as using the old pre 2000 method of NAME\User.

Is there any way to connect the old profile other than remove the workstation to a workgroup and then reconnect to the new server domain.  Will I need to delete the users and recreate them?

Did you rehome the roaming profiles to point to the new server in AD or the GPO? Has DNS been updated in DHCP for the clients to use the new DC and did you clean up all the DNS records pointing to the old server?

I did those items.  It seemed that I could not always get the global catalog to bind to the new server properly.  Not sure if it was the catalog or RPC.

I ended up demoting the server as the last server and reinstalling it.  It works fine now, and was a small network, so I was able to do that
