JSI Tip 2199. Windows 2000 client's roaming profile, in a Windows NT 4.0 domain, requires Full Control on the share.

If the Windows NT 4.0 Server Share that contains a Windows 2000 client's profile is not set to Full Control, the following event is logged:

        Event ID: 1000
        Event Type: Error
        Event Source: Userenv
        Event Category: None
        Description: Windows cannot unload your registry file. If you have a roaming profile,
                      your settings are not replicated. Contact your administrator. 
        DETAIL: Access is denied.
Either change the share permission to Full Control, or move the profile to a Windows 2000 domain controller.

The problem arises because the Windows NT 4.0 Change permission does not allow WRITE_DAC access, needed by the profile code to update the server-based profile.
