    Windows 7 - New Domain - New User - temporary profile?

    Hi

    i have just installed my new domain and having issues with my accounts - none other than my admin accounts will log onto any of my freshly installed domain added PC's...

    they all come up with "You have been loaded with a temporary profile"

    any clues as to what i have missed?

    thanks

    Use Eventviewer to take a look in the system events.. I discovered there was a GPO set for IE branding policy that caused logons to fail on my network - but it could be any number of things - the event logs should give a clue..

    I found my printer scripts caused severe problems with W7, so I moved to GPP printers.

    There are now only GPs for the computer config on the default domain policy... and still only logging me in on a temporary profile with any account apart from a domain admin... any other ideas? I'll copy and paste the whole default domain GP if it helps?

    Do you have mandatory profiles with your non-admin users? If you haven't set up a .v2 mandatory profile with Windows 7, it won't log on as it doesn't work with XP profiles.

    its a completly fresh 2008 r2 system - no profiles for any users... i've tried making them create roaming profiles, use a mandatory and had no setting - ie local profile per machine - everytime i end up with 'you have been logged on with a temporary profile'...

    Create a profile:

    \\domain controller servername\NETLOGON\Default User.v2

    (tip: download Windows Enabler - run this as an administrator and it 'un-greys' the option to copy a local profile)

    Now when a domain user logs on to your domain - if they don't have a local cached profile, a roaming profile or mandatory profile - they will use the profile settings in the default user profile you created..

    Just a thought - are you specifying a profile/path in the user account properties?

    If you are happy with the settings in your 'default user.v2' profile - make a copy of it and call it something useful like student.v2 or staff.v2 - rename the hidden file ntuser.dat to ntuser.man - and specify the profile path in your user accounts to:

    %logonserver%\NETLOGON\student (or staff or whatever)

    Mandatory profiles - nice!

    In Windows Vista and above, you also need to delete the profile keys from the registry when you delete the user in Users.

    A temporary profile is loaded after you log on to a Windows Vista-based system

    The above link explains more
