I admin a small network of 20 clients in a domain. I use roaming profile but
i have problems : Sometimes after the logout of a client, the roaming profile
is not synchronised on server. So when client connect on another clients, it 
seems that some data have been loosed... After there is no later 

( This is not a problem with time : The time is synchro with the netlogon 
script so clients and server have same time.... )

Is roaming profile not working ? Is an issue with W2k clients ? Please help
not to install a W2000 server.

best regards
