  • roaming profils and applications.

    I ve 2 workstations with XP os and microsoft outlook, one server 2003.
    so 2 users : user 1 and 2
    The first has a roaming profile and the second has a local profile.

    i ve to replace the server by a new server, i want to do for the 2 users , a roaming profil fo each.
    i ve copied the profil to \\srvnew\profils\%username%

    The 2 profiles works good !
    But i can't use outlook=> message : impossible to start outlook
    if i log to the old server's domain, it's ok.

    What can i do to start outlook?
    i want also to recup messages and contacts.

    Re: roaming profils and applications.

    are you using outlook with exchange server or just outlook local to the client?

    I haven't done this in a while, but if memory serves me correct:

    by default the outlook profile is stored in c:\documents and settings\"user profile"\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst

    and if you have roaming profile, that will be roamed over as well.

    now you mentioned that you changed the roaming profile path.

    so now if you go to each client pc and go to

    control panel\mail

    click on the data files button

    check the path of the mailbox file. see if the path is not the same as what your currently suppose to be using.

    if i am correct in my assumption, that maybe your issue.
