I'm a teacher and a computer admin for a school. That means I teach all the computer classes in my school, maintain the network, do the purchasing, maintenance of hardware / software etc... (no I don't do this alone!)

I also have quite a personal interest in programming and have done many types of programming from CMOS chipset programming to database applications.

I'm hoping to get a few questions answered but also to contribute by offering some of my own answers. A big part of my role is troubleshooting other people's problems.

We run WinXP Pro on the clients, Server '03 on all the servers. At home I run a Ubuntu machine and a WinXP Pro machine.

My only question is that I'm having trouble with my Server '03 network roaming profiles. Basically when people log out of a machine, a local copy of their profile stays on the client. If I were to make changes to their profile on the server, when the login next to the same machine, it should see that their profile has been updated on the server and load the new profile settings, but instead it *sometimes* loads the local / old profile again. Then when the person logs out the old profile over-writes my changes. The solution has been to delete the local profile and force it to load the server profile when logging in. But the problem is if this person logged into a dozen computers, that old profile could be on a dozen different computers. What gives?

Anyways, I know this is an intro forum ... I'm not really looking for an answer as I've been just dealing with it for the past few years.

Thanks all!
Great website!

Welcome to this friendly user community!
I hope you have some spare time, after troubleshooting computer problems, teaching, and maintaining your school's network, and of course just plain living, to lend a helping hand here.
