Error while accessing network from home

I have created home directory for my users but I have a problem when the user tries to logon. They get this message, "Windows cannot locate your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with your local profile. Changes to the profile will not propagate to the server. Logon failure the user has not been granted the requested logon to the computer".

Can you offer any suggestions? I'm very grateful to you.
From the above information it looks like the location of the profile is misconfigured in the computer account or the share it?s pointing to for the profile is unavailable/inaccessible. Verify that the profile location is configured as the UNC path (e.g.: \\machine\share), is shared and has the Share // NTFS permissions set correctly. Also verify the network settings on the machine and accessibility of the shared location (profile share) from other machines. Sometimes the network problems cause these sorts of errors.
