I recently installed a new 2000 server to an existing domain. Joined it no
problems and I can see and modify users from both servers no problems. This
server is going to act as a Terminal server on the network. I have went
along and installed lots of applications on the new server using the command
"change user /install" "execute". In order for the users to be able to use
the applications first time they log on it creates their profile in documents
and settings. However it does not seem to bring in the desktop shortcuts
that was set in the all users desktop/ profile. I can do the same task on
the first server and all the applications show up under that users profile.
Any Ideas what is going on?

1. Copy the desktop shortcuts to the Default User - Desktop folder.
Also lets for now take out the application out of the picture. Just
make some empty text files in All Users and Default User desktop
folder. And maybe 1 or 2 shortcuts to calc.exe and notepad.exe.

When the new user logs in, do the shortcuts and the text files appear?

If not, check \\domainname\netlogon\ . Do you have a DefaultUser
folder in there

2. Enable UserEnv Logging and send me the UserEnv.log which is created
in %windir%\debug\usermode\userenv.log
[ http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;221833 ]

Steps:
* Logged in as administrator to the Terminal Server, browse to
%windir%\debug\usermode and rename the current userenv.log to
userend.old
* Create a New User (it has to be a new user) in AD and login as that
user
* After login, you still dont see the shortcuts etc
* Logout and login as Adminisrator. Browse to %windir%\debug\usermode
and pick the new UserEnv.log file and email it to me and be sure to
attach it with the post tool (with the name of the new user)
