    Temporary Profile message with Mandatory Profile

    So we have Mandatory profiles setup on Windows 7, and all works great. The only problem is every time someone logs on they get the 'You have been logged on with a temporary profile' message from the system tray.

    Is this normal? Never does it on XP machines.

    no this is not normal

    are your mandatory profile .v2 or are you still using the profiles for xp

    example

    profile for xp would be

    folder name teachers

    for windows 7

    folder name teachers.v2

    the message is pretty much telling you that the pc could not find the specified profile

    Yeah, they are .v2 profiles.

    That made me think of something, would the profile path in AD have to be \\sjc-storage\usersprofiles$\student.v2

    I was under the impression that windows would know to pick up a .v2 profile if needed? Maybe I was told wrong...

    Have checked all the share permissions etc, and still can't work out why we get that message.

    The profile does get loaded it seems, just that popup message keeps appearing...

    This is our situation...

    Our office staff all have roaming profiles on windows 7 - works a treat.

    We are making the move to W7 on all the classroom computers, got it all setup nicely. Yet the mandatory profile keeps loading as temporary... confused...

    yes thats correct
    \\sjc-storage\usersprofiles$\student.v2
    for xp you should have
    \\sjc-storage\usersprofiles$\student

    in ad the profile path for the user should be

    \\sjc-storage\usersprofiles$\student

    windows works out which one to load



    have you changed the ntuser.dat to ntuser.man

    Is it keeping an old entry for where the user profile should come from / be cached to in the Registry? Some workstations get very stubborn about that.

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

    (Off the top of my head.)

    our ad points to \\schoolserver\desktops\student so it is pretty much the same as yours
    also i think someone posted a pre made default profile for windows 7 on here

    Perfect! Followed the bits we needed on that link and now works a treat!

    Ours must have been messed up, also a few things on that that we didn't do before.
