  • Error in Copying the Roaming Profile!!

    Hi Guys,

    I just configuer a user to use a Roaming Profile for his account, but when the user logs on he gets an error says:
    Code:
    Windows cannot copy file C:\Documents and Settings\habibalby\ to location \\serv4\profile\habibalby\. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator. 
    
    
    DETAIL - Access is denied. 
    
    Windows cannot update your roaming profile. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator. 
    
    
    DETAIL - Access is denied.
    The Folder which is shared for the Profile is give full control for the user, and everyone group is given full control on the folder as well.

    But why is saying Access is denied?

    Thanks,

    Habibalby

    check the permissions for the user (habibalby) to the respective share.

      Check the sharing permissions of the share on the folder then ensure that NTFS permissions are propegated down the tree.

        The user Habibalby has got full control on the folder Profiles. And also, the Everyone Group has given full contol on the same folder as well and still the same error exsit.

        Any clue ?

        Thanx,

          Yes but have you actually checked the SHARE permission and the NTFS permission??

          Is the folder shared out??

            yes, the Share Permission of Habibalby is full Control. And the Security Permission for Habibalby is Full Controll too.

            And the folder is shared.

              Try logging in as the user and see if you navigate to the folder to see if you get the same error. Also check the the event viewer for userenv errors. It's possible that you may have shared the problem, but you could have forgotten something accidentally. Recheck NTFS and share permissions on the folder as well.

                Something has changed if you cannot get access to the folder.

                Can you actually browse to the folder and copy something into it??

                Are you sure that there are no DENY permissions set anywhere. Remember to check folders above.

                Now i'm also presuming that you haven't shared the actual folder that you are accessing and have shared the folder above??

                Also check the permisions on the local profile.

                  It worked fine now since I have created another profile and made the Target Path to the new folder.

                  The problem was not becuase of the Permission on the Folder itself. As what wullieb1: Can you actually browse to the folder and copy something into it?? and the Result is Access Denied.

                  But why this problem happened, Access Denied on the Folder ?


                  Thank you guys for your support.

                    The only reason i can think of that you would get "access denied" is if you have insufficient permissions to the folder.

                    Where did you set the profile folder options???

                    This should be set on the Profile tab in ADUC.

                    The path you would enter is \\servername\foldername\%USERNAME%

                    In your case it would be \\serv4\profile\habibalby

                    I'm unsure if the traling \ would affect it
