You've loaded the ntuser.man into regedit and changed the permissions? You have seperate mandatory profiles for XP and 7, with a .man and a .man.v2 extension to the folders, available in a network share with access to all users? Tell us exactly what's happening.

I have seperate Profiles. Student for XP and Student.V2 for 7 users.
I loaded the ntuser.man into the rededit, called it ntuser, went to permissions, it was set to EVERYONE and all ticked. one that was done I did unload. then in the profile now I have
Some files with .DAT and some with .MAN'' The .Man's were created when I did the regedit.
I have a new GPO for windows7 and some test users. When i log onto the 7 machine with a user that has the Student.V2 profile its not pulling over any of the desktop folders or start Menu folders I have placed in the profile

Ah - when you set the permissions to Everyone in regedit - make sure it sets this permission recursively to all subfolders and files, otherwise it won't work.
The Start menu shouldn't really be done through a mandatory profile imo, use redirection in Group Policy. Keep your mandatory profile as small and sleek as possible - how big is it currently?

Im using the Default Profile at the moment 1.50mb also I checked all the folders and they are set to Everyone full control on the regedit.

Are you attempting to have Appdata as part of the mandatory profile? Strip it out and try it redirected to test.

Anyone got any other ideas I can try?

What exact symptoms are you getting now? Are there any useful pointers in the system logs as to what's failing?

The profile just doesnt pull over iv tried everything on here. When I log on and try to get it to read the profile called student.V2, it now creates another folder there called Student.V2.V2

another also tried the profile on another server. It has Read, Read and Execute amd List folder contents.
22nd November 2010, 10:32 AM #27
have you set your users to look for \\server\share\profile or \\server\share\profile.v2
if the latter it wont work windows handles the v2 bit itself you dont need to type it
22nd November 2010, 10:47 AM #28
its going to \\DC\netlogon\profile.V2
Its in the same location as my XP .MAN profiles and they work fine.
22nd November 2010, 10:52 AM #29
but how is it getting the v2 bit sis you type it in the profile box if so just use \\DC\netlogon\profile you dont explicitly state .v2 the win7 box works that out itself
