Hi all, This is my first help type thread, so i may not get all the required details in first time, but give me a shout if you need any more info than what i provide here We currently have a small network of about 30 computers running 1 primary domain controller (also file server), 1 secondary domain controller (also exchange server) and 1 SQL server. All server O/S are Server 2003 and all clients are XP Pro. We have a problem with some members of staff where they logon and Windows cant find their roaming profile, and it reverts to using the local profile. I have had a browse around a few places on the internet for various problems and there are a couple of main problems which people seem to have. One problem being the connection to the server being lost, but we have ruled that one out as being a cause. The other one is being folder permissions for the profile storage location. Once the user is created in AD all the permissions are set automatically and we don't touch anything to do with their profile unless this problem occurs. The other problem which i have seen is that the profile is corrupted in some way. How can the profile be corrupted? Is this something on the server side or the client side updating the profile on the server when logging off...? Out of the 30 users, there have been only a handful of people who have experienced this problem (including myself). The way that we get around it is to backup certain things on their profile, delete them from AD and recreate the profile. All is happy and it may not happen again. There has been one user which has had this problem a couple of times, so we have had to delete and recreate the user a couple of times. There are currently 3 users who have the problem with their profile at the moment, but i am holding off sorting these out so i can try any suggestions that may come about Anybody have any ideas of what could be causing this problem or any suggestions on what i can to to fix it please?
