I have a 2003 Terminal Server that is part of a load balanced cluster that assumes 60% load.  For some reason a bunch of the user profiles on this server have 'Account Unknown' listed as the owner and I cannot delete the profiles.  Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Chris

The system isnt a DC though...do you want me to run it on the DC on the network or ?  This is simply a terminal server.

Some are even from today....some show up and others dont - do you think its possible that the swap file size might be causing this?  I noticed that server had a swap file of only 2GB today on the root drive and changed it to 4GB on a secondary drive.

We did a reboot this morning and the swap file did in fact fix the problem.

Thanks,
