The user profiel service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded
The message "The user profiel service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded" for almost all users, I have a couple of accounts it appears to work on including my technician account a student account and a teacher account. We are using roaming profiles in a mainly XP enviroment and server 2003. Profiles must work between the two OS's as staff will be using both daily. All folders have been directed using RSAT on the 7 client and I have read around for this problem but almost all search results were related to the deleting of c:\users... and having to tidy the registry.
The event viewer shows 3 events:
Warning- The winlogon notificaation subscriber <Profiles> failed a critical notification event.
Error-Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with your local profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server when you log off. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.
Details- Access is denied.
Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded.
So obiously for some reason it cannot find the roaming profile on the server, gives up looking and attempts to load a none existant local profile. What is puzzling me is why can't it find this profile? I can log on with my staff group logon fine, setup in the exact same way as all staff accounts with its profile and homepath in the exact same shared location and the same mapped drives setup in RSAT.
This is really bugging me now coming up to the end of term I was planning to build a 7 image and deploy it to our new workstations during the holidays but its not looking good!
