I unshared the profile folder, deleted the dfs-link and rebooted the
profile server. Now everything seems to work.

Still don't know for sure why the initial dfs-link was refused access on
the win2k clients... Weird things happen in Windowsland. Or maybe
Twilight Zone, not quite sure on this...

Do you guys out there also have really weird problems happen for no
apparent reason and then all of a sudden everything works , again for no
apparent reason?
