I now have several machines that all have the same problem....they will not recognise the "Roaming Profiles' and now when I set up some systems, I get a screen that says it cannot open the Roaming profiles OR the Local Profiles....

What gives? We had another guy who was messing around with the server a while back, could it be a setting on the server that isnt allowing someone to keep their local profile.

The fix mentioned above did not work ....I still am at a loss.....any suggestions? On the server side perhaps....I have one XP Pro machine with the problem and one Windows 2000 Pro machine that is also giving me the finger...


Thanks in advance...
