I have a small network with a Win2k3 server/domain, 2 XP PCs and 2 PCs with Vista business 64. I'm not trying to use the same account on both a Vista and XP PC.
Both the XP PCs accounts and PCs are working fine with roaming profiles being copied to and from the server as expected. However, neither of the Vista PCs are doing this properly.
The accounts are setup the same in AD with the user profile pointing to \\servername\profiles\username
, home directory pointing to \\servername\username
, folder redirection enabled for documents.
The profiles folder is shared with EVERYONE, SYSTEM and AUTHENTICATED USERS having full control at the share level.
The profiles folder is permissioned the same way with USERNAME and ADMINISTRATORS having full control on the profile or profile.V2 folders.
When a user first logs onto a PC his profile is created correctly on the PC and saved back to the server on log off as expected. Everything will continue working for a while then for no apparent reason, the profiles on the PCs will stop writing back to the server.
There are no errors being displayed and nothing obvious being logged in the event viewer.
Please, any advise? I'm not getting anywhere with trying to fix this.
Thanks in advance
