I have a server 2008 R2/Windows7 environment. I have read many articles on this exchange and and other sites and found the link to this site (http://www.grouppolicy.biz/2010/08/best-practice-roaming-profiles-and-folder-redirection-a-k-a-user-virtualization
) and followed the instructions to a "T". However, after setting things up and logging in the users to one computer, logging them off and then into another computer I then I look at the path for the redirected folder on the server (logged in as administrator). I am able to view the Users$ folder, each user and each of the users sub folders. For each user I can view the redirected folders (which worked exactly as expected) and see a listing for the users profile.v2. However when I click on the profile.v2 folder I get a popup that says that “you currently do not have permission to view this folder. Click continue to permanently access this folder.” When I click continue I then get a box with “You have been denied access to this folder. To gain access you need to use the security tab.” I set up two test users and changed the permissions for one of them. I can now see the subfolders and files under the joe.v2 folder. There is a ntuser.dat file. However the roaming profile settings do not follow the user to the second computer. The redirected folders do but not the roaming profile. Is this due to permissions and if so what should I change them to? If not then what should I check or change to make this work? I have been trying for quite some time to get this to work as I have two clients in need of roaming profiles.
