Roaming Profile stopped working..

    Question

  • Recently our roaming profile set up no longer works.  I am using GPO and Folder redirection for AppData Roaming, Desktop and Favorites and their Documents folder redirected to their Personal Folder on the network.  

    All the permissions I have set correctly from the start a few months ago and now it no longer sets the roaming profile for new users up.  I have even recreated a new roaming profile GPO for a test user and this still does not work.  I have ran GPresult and the policy is there but it is not applying.  I am not too sure if this is a windows update which could have cause the problem?  the event logs doesn't show up any errors.  

    Please see the pictures with the permissions and setup of GPO.  

     I have been looking in all areas and can not seem to find the source of the problem.  I hope someone can shed some light or help me resolve this.  

    Thanks

  • Hello,

    You mentionned that you ran GPResult and your GPO takes effects for a specific user on a specific computer, right?

    If so, do you have any events in your event logs of your client computer regarding your user profile or folder redirections?

  • Hi,
    What version are the server and client computer using?
    If you are deploying Roaming User Profiles on computers running Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows Server 2012, we recommend making a couple of changes to your Windows environment prior to deploying. These changes help ensure that future operating system upgrades go smoothly, and facilitate the ability to simultaneously run multiple versions of Windows with Roaming User Profiles. To make these changes, please follow the article as below to have a try to see if it works:
