Thread: Admin can not access profile folders

  1. Admin can not access profile folders

    3/4 quarters of the users profiles are unaccessable to
    the Domain or Local Administrator.

    User manager creates profile for new user but when new
    user logs on they cannot change their desktop and when
    they log off it does not save any changes to the server.

    Admin tries to access folder and is denied access, Try to
    change permission on root of drive or any of the folders
    on the drive and access denied is reported.

    D admin and local can create folders and change
    permissions but not on profile folders created by User
    Manager.

    Tried running Fixacl1, No luck, It says it can not get
    Volume info.

    By default, admins do not have file permissions to profile folders
    that are generated. Try using cacls.exe to 'add' permissions for
    administrators and whatever account does backups. Also check the
    share permissions to ensure users have at least change permissions.
