Mandatory Profiles not loading some of the time
We have recently moved our domain to Server 2008. Everything seems to be working fine, software will roll out via GPO, GPO settings all apply, DNS checks out and Netdiag/DCDiag both run and everything looks ok. The main difference to last year is that two of our DC's are now virtual (and server 2008) with the 3rd DC being a physical 2008 box.
The only real issue that Iím having is that profiles are failing to load at random, we use a Default Profile hosted in the server netlogon share which worked flawlessly until this year now at random some people aren't getting it. They still get a start menu and desktop as they're configured using folder redirection but applications don't have any settings. To try to solve this problem Iíve temporally set a mandatory profile in the users tab but this is having the same issue.
I was thinking it might be due to load but when I watch the servers during logon the servers are hardly under any load and I can see that logons are being distributed between the three DC's.
I'm going to have a scour through group policy to see if there's a setting to force XP to wait for the remote profile can anyone suggest other things to check?
