this may sound like a basic question but i'm not entirely sure how
roaming profiles work so i'm not sure if i have it working properly. i
created a local user account on a client machine and then joined that
machine to the domain. i then logged in as domain administrator and
copied the user profile from the local machine to the server. if i
login with this user account (now the domain account) from another
machine, i can see the files that are supposed to be there but
everything else like the wallpaper, shortcuts, and windows styles are
not correct.... is roaming profiles supposed to work like this??? or
are you supposed to have the EXACT user settings no matter what
machine you log onto???
