Hacing a problem with this at my work.
Running 2000 server with a citrix farm for our thin clients.
Thin clients load fine but for some reason the fat clients have stopped loading the user profile.
These are new machines and WERE working ok but then just stopped - I had to remove the profile path just so the students could log on. Now they have to use the RDP to connect to the citrix server and access their accounts.

Thats all I can think of - any ideas?

Many Thanks

does this happen to all roaming profiles or only a few specific ones?

I've seen this before (but with Ubuntu server) and deleting NTUSER.DAT in the profile fixed it. seemed to be caused by profiles that logged on but only half logged off.

As far as I can tell, it is specific to certain users but cannot be 100% sure. I also know that when a user logs off and nobody else uses that machine and the log on again it logs straight in.

I might try deleting the dat file on a couple of accounts and see if that fixes the problem.

I should have said, try renaming it (not deleting), and while the user is logged out. NTUSER.DAT is the user/profile's registry hive. (Don't want you to break anything on my advice!)
