We got a domain with 2 domaincontrollers and 13 memberservers.
When restarting a memberserver, and logon as administrator,
a temporary profile is created. This has a great impact on our
Citrixfarm which has been slowed down a lot.
Why those temp-profiles ? The domaincontrollers has no errors in log
and it is posible to ping the domain from all servers.

    My suggestion would be instead of using the local Administrator account to logon to each server, create a unique user ID for each server in the AD of the domain controller. Then give the user ID for each Server account Domain Admin rights in the AD.... or assign them only the security permissions they require for the domain.

    We are using the domain administrator login and
    wonder why it suddenly beginning to create temp profiles.
    It seems that it cant find the domain.

    Accepted Solution

    1. Do you have a profile path (roaming profile) specified in AD for the Domain Administrator?  If not, a local copy will be created upon logon if a local copy does not already exist.  

    2. If you have a profile path specified in AD for the Domain Administrator, how large is it?  The larger the roaming profile the longer it will take to log on.

    3. Does this occur on all of your servers?
