I have tried to setup roaming profiles on Windows 2008 R2 Server running with all Win7 client PCs. I have setup folder redirection for My Documents, Desktop, Favorites and AppData.
Have two questions
The folder redirection part seems to be working as expected. The user and all folders under it get created and I see files in them. But the roaming profile does not seem to work. The roaming profile folder does get created with a .V2 appended to the username but it shows empty with nothing in it. I have logging on as that user a couple of times (BTW: The roaming profile is setup in AD and not in Group Policy). I have doubled checked the Share and NTFS permissions as in other threads on this site and they look correct.
How is roaming profile different than redirecting My Documents, Desktop, Favorites and AppData. In other words what else gets shared/centralized by enabling roaming profiles.
