EFS error when encrypting a mapped folder network

EFS - Encryption file system.
why i am getting this error when i try to encrypt a folder on a  mapped drive (File Server). Does EFS has limitation for encrypting on remote folder? This folder is on a file server network, same IP network and folder is share. All servers are running Windows 2012 R2, and windows 8.1 Pro,Errorwhat i can do to resolve this?
Thanks,
FAusto.

you have setup roaming profile
logon to machine with user who don't have roaming profile set and also having permissions on share folder and then try to encrypt files

EFS can work on remote shares as well, its not limited to local files

We do not use roaming profile. this is a AD domain account login to a workstation with a mapped folder on file server. When encrypting i receive this error. is the problem at the local computer, user domain, or file server?
