Windows User Profiles? Windows can't log you in because your roaming mandatory profile is not available.
Posted on 2007-11-28
We have some users who need to be able to use Remote Desktop to login to a Windows 2003 server who are getting the message "Windows cannot log you in because your roaming mandatory profile is not available."
Because we use Citrix we have M:\users\ntuser.man in the Profile field under the Terminal Services Profile tab. If I remove M:\users\ntuser.man the users don't get the message and they can login to the server. My manager says that we must have m:\users\ntuser.man in the Profile field.
I see the problem as being if they don't log in to the Citrix server their roaming mandatory profile is not being found, and hence they get the message.
So with all this being said how can I enable the users to login to the server via Remote Desktop and keep the m:\users\ntuser.man in the Profiles field?
