Where are my profile options?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.group_policy (More info?)

Stumbling block #2..

I want to set up folder redirection (which doesnt work even though Ive set
the share permissions and doublechecked everything and gone through various
guides, but that aside), I'm going through some MS documentation to setup
Roaming Profiles in conjunction with Folder Redirection.

However, the guide specifies items to be set in:
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\User Profiles

But I don't even have this, all I have in ..\System is Logon, Disk Quotas,
DNS Client, Group Policy, Windows File Protection

Do I need to download an add-on adm or something? Any help, as always is
much appreciated

    Hm, upon checking the webt I can see that there are a number of adm's
    available with various options and some already in the INF folder. How do I
    incorporate these into the GP editor? Its all seeming to get far too
    complicated...

    You just need to upgrade your Windows ADM files to the newest ones.
    Don’t worry about "overwriting" the current ones unless you have
    made any changes. You can download at MS. Just copy ADM’s into
    C:\Windows\inf directories on all DC’s and machines running
    adminpak.msi (or C:\Winnt\inf)

    I have tips on setting up profiles on my website
    http://www.sd61.bc.ca/windows2000

    Folder Redirection is REALLY dependent on DNS working properly. Make
    sure your DNS is working properly
    http://www.sd61.bc.ca/windows2000/dns.htm
    Make sure you have created the Folders first through AD accounts and
    if running windows 2003 make sure you changed the SHARE (not NTFS)
    permissions on the server to Everyone=Full Control.

    Cheers,

    Lara

    I am so glad you solved your problem. That is great. It can be really
    confusing when Folder Redirection doesn’t work.

    Cheers,
