Recurrance of Cannot load profile - filename is too long / access is denied (temp internet files)
Posted on 2006-06-02
I've got about 60 users here and one user in particular keeps having the problem I shall list below. Last week another user had it ... it's becomine a bit of a pain and I wondered if anyone can shed a solution on it (I kind of know the cause!)
We are running XP SP2 and Windows 2003 Server
1. User logs on with a roaming profile
2. Profile contains a very long pathname file in the Temporary Internet Files path
3. Profile crashes out and loads a default
4. I have to log on as Administratrator, kill the local copy of profile and reload the entire profile - that seems to work
Here's an example of an error log
Windows cannot copy file \\mi5\userprofiles\david_g\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\E1YRGN8L\=60&r=empty&title=The%20AA%3A%20Breakdown%20Cover%2C%20Insurance%2C%20Loans%2C%20Motoring%20Advice%2C%20Routes%2C%20Finance&cd=32&ah=996&aw=1280&sh=1024&sw=1280&pd=undefined to location %2. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.
I thought of one workaround and that was to store the temp files locally - but it's hardly 'roaming profile'.
Is there any way around this ... it's happening far too regularly for my liking,
