"Access Denied" Error Message When Updating Roaming User Profile

Symptom: When a user with a roaming user profile logs off, the following error message may be displayed:

Windows cannot update your roaming profile. Contact your network administrator.
DETAIL - Access is denied

The same user may have no problem when logging off a Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 client using the same roaming profile. With Windows 2000 clients, the behavior is the same whether the roaming profile server is a Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 server.

Resolutions: 1. The latest service pack for Windows 2000.
