EDIT: Rephrased this question to convey the message precisely.

A user, (user1) use to login into multiple computers on the domain using his password, say (user1/password1)

He needs My Documents, folder to be stored on the domain controller. So that he could see same set of files, on each client PC when he login.

How can I obtain this. Any suggestion would be helpful.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

You need to be way more specific. How are you loading/unloading the profiles? What GPOs apply? Where is the file server? Are you doing offline files? What does the event log say? Etc. – MDMarra Sep 26 '12 at 22:39
@MDMarra Domain controller itself has additional role of file server as of now. – Abhijeet Sep 27 '12 at 5:54

If I read the question correctly you want all newly created accounts to have roaming profiles. I'm not sure if that is possible but there is a very easy way to achieve the desired results. Simply create one user account that has all the settings you want new accounts to have and use that as a template when creating new accounts.

Folder Redirection is the feature you want to control just the location of My Documents. Find it under the User Policy in a Group Policy Object. You can just set a network path for My Documents (and/or most other profile folders), and then give him the only permissions to the GPO so it only affects him.
