I am trying to set up roaming profiles with a Windows NT 4.0 Server and a Windows XP Pro computer. I have created the account via the “User Manager for Domains” tool, created a share called “Profiles” in the root of the C:/ drive, and joined the XP computer to the domain.
When I try to log on, it tells me that either the Admin group or the current user must have ownership of the folder, and that it “cannot find the local profile.” I have granted “Full Control” to all groups, including Administrators. I am able to log on with the account, but changes are not saved when I log off. It has created a folder with the username in the share I have set up, yet the error persists even when I delete the folder and start from scratch.
The server is named as “EVANSERVER” and has a local IP of 10.0.1.37. The XP computer is named “EVANSERVERWKSTN” and has an IP of 10.0.1.38. Here is the current setup for the user folder and home directory (PLEASE SUBSTITUTE ALL FORWARD SLASHES FOR BACKSLASHES):
USER: evan2 (evan2)
|User Profile Path: //EVANSERVER/Profiles/evan2 |
|Logon Script Name: |
|( ) Local Path: |
|(*) Connect [Z:] To: //EVANSERVER/Profiles/evan2 |
*NOTE: The parenthesis indicate radio buttons, with the asterisk meaning selected.
This is my first time experimenting with domains and active directory, so forgive me if I am asking any stupid questions. Thanks a million!
