.V2 profiles for user logging on to Win7 machines not created

We are finally moving to Win7.  I have a new Win7 machine which has been joined to my domain (SBS 2003).  When I log on as a user (not me - anoher user), I am logged on with a temporary profile and I don't create a .V2 profile on my old XP profile.  When I did the same thing with my domain at home I didn't have a problem, but at work it is simply not happening.

I had previously setup a Win7 and logged on as me and created my new .V2 profile.  I was playing with this for some period of time and was ready to start with everyone else.  One day when I logged in, all my desktop icons and everything was suddenly  read only.  I figured I would setup the rest of the machines and then come back to mine, wipe it and reload the whole thing.   When I hit the snag with the profiles, I tried to sign on as me on the new machine.......it said "Welcome" for a while, then went black and eventually gave me a logon screen again.  I don't really care about fixing the problem with my profile and logon - I mention it only on the chance that it has something to do with my current problem

Thanks

you have a problem connecting / accessing the share that holds your user profile.  remove yourself from the rediirectedfolders group policy. you should have the checkbox checked to restore items when this policy is no longer in effect

I don't have any users participating in folder redirection, so I don't think this is my problem.  Was this in response to the general issue I am having with users not creating .v2 profiles or was it my issue of suddenlt being read only and then not even being able to longon?

Thanks

I don't think that SBS2003 knows anything about .v2 profiles  .. remember EOL is July 14th
