    Roaming profile issue with "Must Change Password" and XP SP3

    Just a heads up for anyone in the following situation:

    1) XP SP3 machines on their domain,
    2) Set your user accounts so that the user must change their password at logon,
    3) User has a roaming (mandatory or not, doesn't matter) profile configured

    The user won't get their profile, - they'll get a local one instead, and that will keep happening until they restart the machine.

    MS apparently fixed the bug in Vista (see KB 941797) but say nothing about XP.

    No, and they don't confirm the bug in XP either in that article, is this an official problem or just one that you've been having?

    It's something I ran into this afternoon, - I've just confirmed it with a couple of other people (including DMcCoy, who'll probably be along in a moment!).

    Could be a fairly major issue for schools :|

    Yes, it's well and truely broken

    I have mandatory, logout if no profile is available already turned on and it ignored everything and just logged in with the default profile.

    Even a relog doesn't fix it, only a reboot

    Anyone managed to find a fix for this? - As we have the very same issue...

    Have been suffering with this problem for several days!!

    This morning, after viewing endless userenv.logs and searching the net, I have come across a hotfix from Microsoft. I'm just downloading it. Checkout the link below:-

    When you try to log on to a Windows XP SP3-based computer by using a roaming profile, the roaming profile cannot load.

    Michael.

    The hotfix certainly fixed the problem. I have now implemented this in to our build.
