A couple of weeks ago, we experimented with mandatory profiles for users, but due to some issues with one piece of software, we had to revert back to roaming profiles.
However, even though the
ntuser file is now a
.dat, not a
.man, the local computers still list the users profile as
Mandatory (when I right click 'My Computer', click 'Advanced' and then click 'Users...'). This is happening in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, and the Active Directory is located on a Windows Server 2003 machine.
The effect of this is that it takes a very long time for users to log on (usually 20-25 minutes), before a Windows Script Host error is thrown.
Consequently, I am having to log on to each computer as a local admin and delete the users local copy of their profile so that it is recreated correctly as
Roaming when they next log on. I'm not even able to change the
Profile Type here because that only works between
Does anyone know of a less time-consuming way of fixing this problem? Thanks.
