have the following environment:

windows SBS 2k3 premium
windows server 2003 standard (terminal server - domain member)
wyse terminal

User "auser" logs in to domain
User "auser" does not get any error messages
user "auser" gets a temp profile
user "auser" has the following in SET statement parameters

ALLUSERSPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users
APPDATA=C:\Documents and Settings\TEMP\Application Data
CLIENTNAME=Terminal-02
ClusterLog=C:\WINDOWS\Cluster\cluster.log
CommonProgramFiles=C:\Program Files\Common Files
COMPUTERNAME=MY-TSV01
ComSpec=C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe
FP_NO_HOST_CHECK=NO
HOMEDRIVE=Z:
HOMEPATH=\
HOMESHARE=\\my-sbs01\myelectric
KIPR=C:\Program Files\KIP\Request\
LOGONSERVER=\\MY-SBS01
NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS=4
OS=Windows_NT
Path=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem
PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH
PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE=x86
PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER=x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9, GenuineIntel
PROCESSOR_LEVEL=15
PROCESSOR_REVISION=0209
ProgramFiles=C:\Program Files
PROMPT=$P$G
SESSIONNAME=RDP-Tcp#38
SystemDrive=C:
SystemRoot=C:\WINDOWS
TEMP=C:\DOCUME~1\TEMP\LOCALS~1\Temp\1
TMP=C:\DOCUME~1\TEMP\LOCALS~1\Temp\1
USERDNSDOMAIN=MYELECTRIC.LOCAL
USERDOMAIN=MYELECTRIC
USERNAME=auser
USERPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\TEMP
windir=C:\WINDOWS

Why doesnt user get his profile -- verified it exist on server in proper location
Why doesn't user get error message "loading temporary profile"

User is in administrators group
User has rights to "profile on server"
Each time user log's in they need to re-setup outlook, have no shortcuts, and any files etc they create or save in this profile willl disappear once they logoff.

Appreciate any assistance on this one.

Thanks.

Did you try finding and deleting the temp profile - then having the user log in

It worked for me sometime ago.
