user profile

hi, few days ago i was trying to free some space from my c:\ drive(system drive) so i decided to move the virtual memory to another drive on the server(the drive is on a separate disk from the system drive disk) i have 16 gb of physical memory and my configuration is the f:\ drive(the one i moved the virtual memory) 15000-25000 and left for the c:\ 800-1600 for error reporting
now my administrator user profile was corrupt and I'm getting error 1508,1502 of user profile service

can someone have a solution?

I recommend doing the following...
- Login wiht a domain admin or local administrator account
- Move the Administrator profile (corrupt one) to a temp directory c:\old profiles
- Logout of the current account and log back in with the Administrator account
- This will attempt to re-create the administrator profile
- Once this is done, copy the settings from c:\old profiles (favs, desktop items, and my docs)

Now you should be able to login and logout of this account with no issues.
*If you have any issues moving the "corrupt" profile to c:\old profiles location reboot the server, login with a different account i.e. (domain admin account etc) and try the profile move again. This usually happens when the account is still in memory, reboot fixes this issue.

Hope this helps~!

The temp folder is not what we are trying to move. Do you see the administrator folder under c:\users? If you do this is the folder you want to move, to another location. If this profile is corrupt or incorrect permissions then then when you log on with will use a "temp" profile (this folder cannot be modified). We need to move the original profile folder to another location.

Once you have moved this folder, to another location i.e. "c:\old profiles" (this will need to be done with another account from the administrators group, you cannot move a profile folder of the same user you are logged in as).

Once you have moved the administrator profile folder (with another account) log back in with the administrator account and it should attempt to re-create a new profile folder. From there you can just move the settings (favs, my docs, desktop items) to the new profile that has been created.

After you have done this what error messages are in the event viewer? Does this only happen with the administrator account or does it happen with all others?

Take a look at this link as it describes the same issue only on Vista. This should work for you Windows Server 2008 as well...
