    User Profile Service Failed the login on ALL W7 Machines

    Hi,

    Driving me up the wall time...

    For certain domain users (all students, mostly in the same OU although could be a red herring), all our W7 machines are denying logon. They get that lovely error "The User Profile service service failed the login. User profile cannot be loaded".

    Some background info and stuff I've tried.

    W7 use folder redirection to redirect AppData folder to one central location (permissions look fine on this. Student group are read only with append data. System is full control).
    I've tried deleting all local profiles in C:\user and bringing over the default folder from a known good machine.
    The error I get in event logs is an unspecified error (event 1500)
    I've looked at previous threads here and also have started using Delprof2 on shutdown scripts. I've also looked here and here.
    What I don't get is some users are fine and some aren't.
    I've re-created the bad users and i've even copied known working accounts in AD with still no luck.

    Has anyone else had this problem and actually managed to fix it? Surely I don't need to re-image the machines?

    Thanks

    Time on the machines.

    Do you have a backup domain controller.

    The time seems to be about a minute or so slow compared to the DC.

    We do have a backup DC

    I had similar problem and it was the time on the clients.

    Are the clients authenticating from the same domain controller

    Check on a machine to see if the profile entry for that user exists in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList while the related folder under C:\Users does not.
