Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to set up roaming profiles within a Windows Server 2012 domain. Here is what I did:

  • I created a shared folder, which I am able to access at \\dc1\profile when logged in as the roaming user. (share & ntfs permissions are set to Everyone - FC for testing)

  • I set the user's profile to use \\dc1\profile\%username% in the user's properties.

When I log in to the domain as the user I am getting kicked back to the local profile. A folder gets created in the profile share called <username>.V2 that is filled with the default folders but for some reason this isn't the profile being used.

The only error showing up in my event log is a printer driver error (not installed).

I have also tried using \\dc1\profile\%username%.V2 as the profile path but I get the same result.

Any help would be much appreciated.
