Hi,

I'm getting the following error on my Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition Service Pack 1 server.  I have about 40 computers using terminal sevices and 30+ can log on with no problems and then we start getting the error.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1500
Date:           23/03.2997
Time:            16:18:35
User:            MURPHY\vclima
Computer:      SANDY03
Description:
Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded. Check that you are connected to the network, or that your network is functioning correctly. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.

 DETAIL - Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.  

I'm also getting error 1508.  I've tried everything i can think of to solve this problem, downloaded a couple of hotfixes from Microsoft and also the UPHClean program but we're still getting the problem.  At the moment i have to kick everybody out of terminal services and then let them back in, this temporarily fixes the problem!

Can anybody help please, i'm getting desperate!  Thanks.

In other words - use local profiles for TS sessions - not roaming ones.

Hi,

I'm already using local profiles and was doing before the error started appearing.

Have you got disk quotas enabled for the user accounts? If so - could this be a space/permissions issue on their home folders/work areas?

Also - are you sure that the UPHClean service is started and running?

Disk quotes aren't enabled plus theres still 30GB of free space on the C drive.  The UPHClean service appears to be running okay and there are numerous entries in the event viewer.

Can you create some new users - and try with those?

Basically - see if you can replicate the issue with new user accounts.

Then you can find out whether this is a profile issue - or something else.

I created a new user last week and so far this user hasn't had any problems but this user is usually logged into terminal services by 9am.  The error seems to occur for random users but usually when they are logging in later in the day, the first problems usually start around 10am.

Okay - can you backup the one of the users' files and data with USMT (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=799ab28c-691b-4b36-b7ad-6c604be4c595&DisplayLang=en)

then delete the user from AD - and recreate it?

Then see if that user still has problems.

hi and235100,

Thanks for your help, it actually seemed to be a problem with the pagefile.

Glad you got it sorted.

I take it from your registration date that you know how to get your question closed?

If so - I have no problem with a full points refund...

That wasn't really necessary (to allocate me the points) - but thanks anyway.

For future reference (I am sure you already know this, but for other people that may read this in the future) - you are not obliged to allocate points in questions where you yourself solved the problem.

There does seem some confusion on EE about this - that Askers are obliged to give points to Experts who helped them... but thank you all the same.

Hi Jason,

This was so long ago that i can't remember the exact solution, i've had so many problems since then! :o)  However, i would follow what and235100 suggested.  Thats a good place to start and it got me on the right track.  Also check your pagefile, my problem was definitely related to the pagefile, try increasing the size or moving it to a different drive???  Check the event viewer, there might have been something in there to poing towards the pagefile.  Hope this helps, i'll add more if i remember.
