Roaming profile not saving on log off?
I am struggling to get to grips with roaming profiles, can anyone help?
I have set the users profile to got to \\server\profiles$\%username% and created the profiles$ share on the server.
When the user logs on for the first time to an xp client the profile folder is created in \\server\profiles$ but then nothing ever appears in this folder afterwards when they log off?
Has anyone see this before?

Yes. Try giving the users whose profiles are being saved in that location Full control permissions on the share 'profiles$' and full control on the folder in that share where their profiles are located.
If the user has insufficient permissions the folder is not created/populated.
It may be odd that the folder is created in the profiles$ directory at logon - I believed this was created during the first log off..

Hmm, perhaps it was at log off, I shall go have another look.

Definitely at log in the folder is created. Weirdly this must mean permissions are right? I have given full access to this user to the share and full permission in security. Still nothing.

Could I have a problem with my clients not writing the profile back? Nearly all our clients are built from the same fog image.If there is a problem on one it will be on all.
I have absolutely no error in event viewer so have very little to work with

How do you know there is nothing in the folder?

I looked in it! I browsed to it and as I have given everybody full access to the share and the folder I could just go straight in there.
