Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Users need to have Full Control permissions on the folder in which the profiles reside.
That is the first thing I would check.

To see where the profiles are being stored:

-Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
-Click the domain and the OU where the user account resides.
-Right-click the user account for which to set a roaming profile, and then click Properties.
-Click the Profile tab, and look for the path information in Profile path.

    I have tried all of the above. If I change the user account to an administrator then everything works okay, but otherwise they are unable to connect to the roaming profile.

    Have you checked the sharing permissions of the profiles parent folder, in addition to the NTFS permissions ?

    Yes, I have checked all of the permissions for both the profiles folder and the individual user profile folders. Still no success. As long as I allow everyone to be assigned as a domain admin everything works okay.
