Identify the user's profile path. There are two methods to identify the profile path. Either by user path settings or user SID. The user SID method is preferred.

User SID method

Use the GETSID tool from the Windows Server Resource Kit to obtain the SID. Use syntax similar to the following example:

GETSID \\SERVER1 UserName \\SERVER1 UserName

Once you obtain the SID, use Regedit.exe or Regedt32.exe to select the user's SID under the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
