Copied user works, new user does not
In AD I copy an existing user to create a new user filling the relevant name / info etc.
I go to client XP machine, new user can logon, home folder is created, roaming profile folder is created after log off all is ok.
If i just go to the relevant OU and create a new user filling in the details, setting profile path and home folder as an existing user. When i login to a client PC i get “windows cannot locate user profile etc..” let the logon continue the home folder is working ok with the correct permissions. AD knows the user is there because the login username and password are OK.
Also if i use a bulk user creation tool i also get “windows cannot locate user profile etc..”
The bulk created users and the new user have the relevant permissions.
Copying a user work fine, creating new users from scratch does not work
Where can i start looking for the problem
