  • help with user profiles created on Server (not configured as roaming)?

    Hi,

    I have installed a new SBS 2003 Premium.
    Moved users from SBS 2000.
    Created the accounts manualy and moved users to a new Domain.
    THey used XP Pro before so on most of them I took them out of the old domain and put them in the new domain.
    For the Exchange information the Migrate Wizard didn't work so I dumped them all to PST and imported them back (jont many users...)
    Some how all the users are created on the SBS Sever?
    They are not configured as a roaming profile.
    There is not Redirection onfigured either through the wizard or though the GPO.
    The profiles are created for all the users rigardless of when they login (after a minute, an hour... no consistency).
    Even though this is an SBS and the TS is configured as Remote Admin so user shouldn't be created.

    here are the specs:

    HP Server Dual Xeon 3.2+4GB mem
    Raid 1 (72x2) + Raid 5 (144x2)
    SBS 2003 Premium (Fresh install on the new HW)
    SP1
    EXCH SP2
    AD
    1 DC...

    At this point any serious ideas wil be welcomed?

    AAlso might be important:
    I'm trying to solve this issue because of two things:
    1. I never saw this before and I have installed my share of WINSRV adn SBS.
    2. Ever since the upgrade to the new Server (which is ten folds stronger than before) the entire network is work SLOW! and I mean SLOW.
    So the only thing I managed to find is different are the profiles being created so that why I'm trying to solve.

    So if you might have any bright ideas reagrding soling the speed of the network - go ahaead I'm listenning.
    Let me just say this:
    I'm replaced ALL the networks cards to brand new.
    I have 2 SWITCHS (3Com) and the wiring is top grade.

    Thank you for your support

    Regards

    Can you explain a few more items, so that we can perhaps get you some help?
    Where are these "profiles" being stored?
    Why did you create the users manually?
    Have you checked out SMB signing for network performance?

    You may actually need some more professional help as your migration method is unclear.
    TIA

    Iím honoured to have been selected for the SMB 150 list for 2013. This is the third time in succession (no logo available for 2011) that I have been honoured with this award.

      The profiles are stored on the SBS server itself.
      The can be seen either under the profiles under the MY COMPUTER (right-mouse) and also under the C:\docs & sets\...
      The old server was a mess so they didn;t need all the old user just a few so I created them on the server and used the ConnectComputer to put the computers back into the new domain.
      I'l l try disableing the SMB and see if thats help.

      Thank you

        Besides this:
        Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
        Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Par ameters
        Name: EnableSecuritySignature
        Type: REG_DWORD
        Value: 0

        Ant thins else for the SMB to be disabled?
        I've checked the GPO and it's not defined (digital sign).
