Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile

Hi,

when I log on to one of our Windows Server 2003, I don't have any mapped
network drive as supposed...

On my Event Viewer, I have this error message (Event ID 1521):
Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile and is
attempting to log you on with your local profile. Changes to the profile will
not be copied to the server when you logoff. Possible causes of this error
include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem
persists, contact your network administrator.
DETAIL - The network is not present or not started.

Also, this error message (Event ID 1010)
Failed to set the user's home directory (Drive H: connected to Share
\\prtnas01\UsersHome).

Any help would be appreciated...


When I try to manually map the network drive, I get this error message:
"The drive could not be mapped because no network was found"

Thanks,
Antonio

If you run an ipconfig /all at a command prompt, do you get an IP address?
More importantly, if you do get an IP address, for the DNS server, does it
only specify your internal DNS server (more than likely your domain
controller) or is there an ISP's DNS? This is important because if it is
sepecifying an ISP's DNS server, then your machine cannot find your internal
server and more problems than just not getting your profile will occur.
