Hello,

We are running a Windows Small Business Server 2011.  

I recently found that one of the Admins unknowingly created the user account using Active Directory Users and Computers.  Consequently some of the settings like My Documents redirection is not working correctly, etc.  Also the user account does not appear under the Users and Groups section in the Console.

What is the correct manner in which to fix this and make this user account like all the rest that were correctly created in the SBS 2011 Console?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
RealTimer

Don't have time to write up the details in this post - the short of it is use the Change User Roles wizard and select the missing users and set a role for them (make sure they are in the SBSUsers OU first with all the other accounts.
