    Corrupted profiles

    We've suddenly had a spate of corrupted profiles all over the school, this seems to happen when people log onto different machines using roaming profiles. Logging onto the same machine seems fine.

    Has anyone experienced this before?

    The only thing that has changed is we have a new managed wireless system but I might be missing something else.

    Is there a way to force the logon to use the roaming profile from the server everytime?

    There is a policy which will force a logoff if the roaming profile cannot be found. Usually from past experience, if all profiles are becoming corrupt, there may be a problem with your Profiles$ share.

    Problem was with our primary domain controller, it had some errors in the application event log about not being able to access the Group Policy Objects.

    I suppose 285 days uptime is a little too much for Windows 2003 DC

    Rebooted and the problem seems to have disappeared.
