Terminal Server issue - just a blue screen on login
Sorry if this should be in Thin Client form, thought it was more of a 2008R2 issue!
We're having random issues with users logging into our 2008R2 TS farm. Some users login okay, others sit for a very long time, or indefinite, with a blue background. They can ctrl+alt+del and logout but that's it. It's as if explorer doesn't start.
I'm wondering if it comes down to profiles, folder redirection and drive mapping? We have a mandatory profile for all users on our TS. All users have a .bat login file (on all PCs not just thin clients) that maps the shared drives and home drive. Home drive is also set in AD, and we also use folder redirection. It could be time to rethink how we do this, but I'm reluctant to change anything during term time (unless it's definitely this), especially as we have experienced the deleting home directories that's been mentioned by some Windows 7 users.
The event log on the Terminal Server typically shows something like this error
The users folders do exist, and are accessible to them from Fat clients
Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Documents" to "\\bart\pupils\yr05055\".
The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "\\bart\pupils\yr05055"".
I'm getting a lot of flack for this from one member of staff.... :mad: Any help would be gratefully appreciated!
