When I log onto the XP machine I ALWAYS get 2 errors with regards to roaming profiles... The XP machine then creates a new temporary profile each time the user logs in. Which is slow...
Error Message 1
Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with your local profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server when you logoff. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.
DETAIL - The network name cannot be found.
The part about the network name cannot be found is concerning... So I pinged dc01-ubuntu and it worked however when I ping dc01-ubuntu.example.local it doesn't work...
Error Message 2
Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.
The allusers.bat script seems to run however I had to change any instances of \\dc01-ubuntu.example.local
I don't want roaming profiles, but I also don't want error messages each time I log in. And I need those scripts to run.. Any suggestions?
I'm following this updated tutorial..
Here is a link to the Virtual Machine I've created to try to get this working.. You might have to change the static IP address etc to make this work for you? Let me know if you've solved my problem and how. I created this using VMWare Fusion for Mac but I assume it should run in the VMWare player for any other OS..
