Q

Why can't I delete Win2k profiles from Explorer in NT?

I just reinstalled 300 clients with Windows 2000 and created a new roaming profile for each user. I am using a NT4 server box to store these roaming profiles. The problem is that I cannot delete any 2000 client user profiles from this NT server using Explorer. I can delete the profile from the client with no problems. Any ideas?
It is probably a weird permissions error. Try taking ownership of the user profile as the admin on the NT box. I was unable to find any documentation related to this issue.
