    NT4.0 to Server 2003 Profiles

    Some of our workstations were on an NT4.0 Network so the user profile location was set to C:\Windows\Profiles. Now we are operating a fully Server 2003 network how can we set the default save location for userprofiles to C:\Documents and Settings\ as intended. All of the NT4 machines (all running xp) are still using c:\windows\profiles.

    Thanks

    Tom

    NT4 is not compatible with Windows 2003 server. Upgrade.

    I would recommend a clean build of the workstations on XP Pro.

    Sorry to Geoff I didn't make myself very clear. Yes we have upgraded but the XP machines are still using Windows\Profiles to store the all users profile desktop information etc.

    GrumbleDook - Not really an option unless it's an absolute last resort i'm afraid. We have about 30GB of software on each of the machines (imaged of course) but it has all had to be carefully played with to work alongside the other stuff. Was just wondering if a patch or anything was avaliable. I know there is a way to change this in the registry but was looking for something a little easier
