Profile not found using VPN connection, XP uses temp profile
Posted on 2008-06-11
I have a VPN Server setup using Windows Server 2003. The VPN client is an XP machine which was working fine until last week. I tried logging into the VPN, everything was fine, authenticated, registered etc. but the countdown box telling me that the local profile could not be found came up and a temporary profile was created. Thinking this was maybe due to slow network connection I restarted and tried again. Same problem. I then logged into the machine locally as the administrator and deleted the user profile and temporary profiles also and tried again. Still, nothing. It seems to really like temporary profiles.
I then decided to VPN via another computer and it worked fine, no problems.
Any ideas what could be causing this?
