[THIN] Re: Romaing profile permissions

Access Denied errors.  Found a bunch of Technet articles.  Turns out the
permissions don't get set correctly.  MS uses a different API call when
creating profiles and it ignores inherited permissions.  The default
settings are System, Full Control and <User>, Full Control.   It was
supposed to have been fixed in W2K SP1, but I still get the problem.
According to KB222043, the fix is to either manually create the profile
folder before the user logs on or to run policy editor and change the
system policy so that "Add the Administrators security group to roaming
user profiles" is enabled.

 If you enter the profile path into the user's NT account, NT will
create the profile folder for you and set the permissions correctly.
Other than that, it sounds like the permissions you've set are correct.
You don't have to apply the individual ID to the directory.

What type of errors are you getting?

Subject: [THIN] Romaing profile permissions

Hi All,

In an NT domain with W2K metaframe and resource servers, what
permissions do I need to have on the profiles directory?  I have given
Domain Users, Admins, etc  Full Control but I get a lot of errors.  Do I
have to apply the individual user id to his/her profile directory?
