Windows 7 and Server 2003

  • Hi,

     

    Is there any error message when login on the machine via the roaming profile?

     

    Here are some suggestions you can try:

     

    1. Temporarily turn off firewall on each machine.

     

    2. Assure the roaming profile has enough privilege to access the redirect folder on the server machine.

     

    3. Check whether there is any event log on the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2003 machine. If so, please search the error message about roaming profile and post the error here for research.

     

    Thanks,

    Novak

  • You are right there is an event on the W7 computer, on the windows 2003 events the user’s logon credentials are fine.

    For clarity; domain & user names have been replaced with mydomain/user.


    My server 2003 redirect folders were configured from; http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/274443?p=1 about 5 years ago and have never had a permission problem.  Is there a folders permission change W7 is required to have that is different from the original Windows XP / Server 2003 configuration? The strange thing is if I catch a student fast enough I will have them log off and log back in and then they seem to be able to save & create, folders & files.

    3 events are posted and the XML data has been removed.

  • I picked up something on the error that I didn’t notice earlier. In the path;

    \\Mydomain-pdc-2\Student_Files\Students\user\Application, \Students\ shouldn’t be in the path. I’m not sure where it’s being generated from except the fact that the are "student users" live in an OU called “students”. So I doubled checked my GPO and indeed the path reads; Path: \\mydomain-pdc-2\Student_Files\%USERNAME%\My Documents

    One more thing, there is a mandatory profile for students and I know W7 doesn’t like XP mandatory profiles. But I don’t know why that might create the error.

    So in conclusion to this post the reason the error is being generated is because during the redirect the user doesn’t have permission to access \\Mydomain-pdc-2\Student_Files\Students\user\Application but would have permission I think if the path read; \\Mydomain-pdc-2\Student_Files\user\Application. Again I don’t know why \Students\ is being added?

    Any thoughts?

  • I'm wondering if the mandatory profiles that are used with windows XP could be causing problems with W7 computers?
