    First off I'm using Win 2000 server, with a mix of Win 2000 and XP Pro clients.

    I have been struggling with this for a little while now and can't figure out what I am doing wrong/forgetting.
    So basically what I want is a single mandatory profile that is going to be used by a group of users. This is what I have done so far.
    All the users are in place and my group policy for those OU's is also in place. The directory for the shared folder where the profile is stored in has been entered into those user accounts in active directory. I have logged in as on of the users to create the profile within that shared directory. The file extension for the NTUSER.DAT file has been manually changed to .MAN.
    However I can only get it to work with the account that I first logged in as to create the profile. If I try with any other account it pretty much ignores all the group policy settings. I can't think of what I did wrong or what I haven't done to make this work.
    Please, need help bad.

    Thanks for any replies.
