This profile issue is driving me mad too.. My old profile is loading correctly but also not saved at logoff. I've already tried to create a new profile share, everyone full control to avoid acl issues. Even removed all local profiles, cleaned all profiles, and logged on. Nice new profile, everything is saved nicely across settings..........locally. Argh.. The roaming profile stays completely empty. When I fill this newly created empty profile (automatically created by Windows 7, so there should be no acl problems) with my old profile it loads nicely at logon, but again... Settings are only saved locally! Grr. No strange events on server or locally, profile is designated as "roaming" in system properties.
Ab-solutely no clue of what is going on..
This thread is the only place I found wich describes the same problem as I am having. Is it a rare problem or are there not enough Windows 7 beta testers which post their problems? (AND solutions please ;-)
I have a small hunch it has to do something with a new function that should be implemented in this version. Roaming profiles are not only synchronized during logoff but are kept synchronized during your session:http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/thread/345725.aspx-Roaming User Profiles – now the user profiles are automatically synchronized with the server wil you are still logged in, and can roam from one PC to another while remaining logged in on both, and still have the same consistent environment.
Very nice feature, long awaited and hoped for, but could it be broken (in our situation)?? As I said: just a hunch..
Please keep me informed about your progress, hopefully the fix is not far away!
