Terminal Services User Profiles getting locked out
Posted on 2005-04-26
We have a Windows 2003 Term Serv box which is causing us a little bit of grief. The session allows users to use the accounting package and database fine. When the users come in the next morning, and try to log in, it talks about the roaming profile cannot be found and will use the local one. If you continue with this, the desktop appears with the desktop icons missing. However, if we restart the server, users can log on fine. We have set up a batch file that reboots the server first thing in the morning, and the users can log in fine. I thought it may have been the backup software somehow causing the fault, but we stopped the backup one night, and still the same profile. It is like the profile is locked out somehow. I can't rename the profile folder, as it says access is denied, but if i reboot the server, I then can. Something seems to be locking it out which is causing the problem. Any thoughts?
