So you were expecting a remote profile to be downloaded.  Is there one there?

I noticed that policies don't seem to work right now with 2.1.0

I think its just that policies are plain broken in 2.1.0

Turn you logging up to 5 and see if there is any mention of config.pol when a user logs on; if not then its because its broken and thats your problem there.

You could run policy editor on the local PC and turn on roaming profiles properly manually and then it should work.  Roaming profiles worked for us even though the policies were broken.
