I have one user on our domain that seems to have a problem. Whenever he logs on to ANY machine on our network, he only gets logged on with a temporary profile and I can't figure out why!! This problem surfaced when he got a new Window 7 laptop which I set up and gave to him....he called an hour later to say that when he logged on, all his settings had gone. I have tried to log him on to a Windows 7 laptop and a Windows XP laptop, same result.....temporary profile and I can't change the type (roaming /local etc).
On his current laptop, no problem...he logs on using a local account (all our users use Local) and his settings stay, even when he logs out and back in again.
Things I have noticed:
When I logged back onto my PC after he had tried (and failed), his name does not show up in the 'Profiles stored on this computer' list....this is the same on ALL PC's I have tried....it's like he doesn't exist!
I made a couple of desktop changes when logged on as him (icons etc), these DO get loaded when he logs onto another PC, but the profile still shows as TEMP.
His settings ARE being populated to the profile folder on the Domain Controller.
Why is it always a TEMP profile guys?!
