    Windows could not log you on because your profile cannot be loaded

    Hi,
    Ive noticed the last few days that im getting this error on login in a few places:

    "Windows could not log you on because your profile cannot be loaded..."

    Now its happened on 2-3 laptops that 10minutes later work and on a few workstations.
    I cant see any obvious reason why its happening, both DCs are up. The DFS roots/namespaces on the fileserver are running fine, permissions are fine, network traffic and interconnectivity between switches is normal.

    Any ideas?

    + on a side note:
    Has anyone ever tryed putting their mandatory profiles on the C: of each workstation/laptop. I was thinking the other day that that might cut down on network traffic during logins...?

    Thanks in advance everyone. .

    Are you using roaming profiles, sometimes a profile might not load if there is a really long filename, it should give you a reason why the profile hasn't loaded?

    Try and catch it think it comes on after the message you mentioned above.

    Do you have user quotas set in GPOs if so they might need to be increased as their profile may be larger than the space they have allocated therefore not able to load.
    If you run RMCC3 this is also the case, check their temp and history folders also as they can swell the profile of the user.

    Lack of HDD space?

    Had this just recently with one workstation.

    Mandatory profiles here.

    I'll keep an eye out today for it and report back.

    Vanilla network, and there are quotas, but not on the profiles namespaces/folders. Just on the home folders.

    What the tool called?


    Is it possible that a profile has become corrupt being 'downloaded' to the machine? As i remember a workstation about 3 weeks ago had the same problem, and deleting the locally cached profile for the user with the problem fixed it?


    Thanks for the quick replys guys/gals. .

    This cleans the profiles on the local machine with can become corupt if the profile is downloaded at login from the server either mandatory or roaming

    send to all work stations and it will then run as a service. You can deliver it via a GPO no probs
