I've posted something similar to this before but as yet still haven't found a solution that I understand so i'm going to try again. In school we have a server running 2003 but now recently we've upped all our machines to Windows 7. Since doing this whenever a user logs onto the system it logs them on with a temporary profile. The confusing thing for me is that it doesn't seem to do it on some of the other Win7 machines we have...
The staff don't use profiles to log in and it even does it with those but again- only on certain computers. The students have a profile and i've noticed that a .v2 folder has been created for those so i also wanted to know how to transfer the profile settings from the XP profile to the Win 7 profile.
Thanks in advance.
Have you checked out the event log for anny realivant errors?
What happens if you dissalow logging on with a temp profile
This sounds daft I know but are you sure that they actually are logged on with a temporary profile? Some of mine say that and yet the person logged on can see all the shared drives on the server and save successfully to their user area on the server. I've never worked it out
Don't suppose there are any more suggestions here are there? I'm having the same issue, only with 2008R2.
It's only with certain machines for all users as well. I have check network connections and they are fine, I have also vanilla'd the machine, tried removing and readding it to the domain, etc etc. When I log on with the problem users elsewhere, it works fine.
I tried the "Do not log users on with a temporary profile" option, but this just means the user doesn't get the chance to log on. In fact, the only users able to log on are any members of the Technician Team (I can say team now, there's 2 of us! lol) as they are added to Local Administrative Group via GPP, and any member of the local admin group on the machine itself.
So .. HELP!?
You haven't happened to have ghosted or cloned the troubled machines have you? I've been thinking that now... When we got our new systems I imaged them all- just wondering if something bad happened to the registry on them during the process
Is the network using any kind of authentication like 802.11x that might be locking out the network connection till after a user has logged in?
Can you disable the firewall on a faulty machine temporarily, reboot it then ping it from another station before loging on?
Are you using roaming profiles? Are there any eventlog errors? what happens with new users that never had a profile? does this effect all users but only on certain computers?
And were there any eventlog errors?
Try deleting local profile renaming profile on the network share and then try synacks solution. works for me every time
