More roaming profile problems with Server 2008 TS
Posted on 2010-08-27
Users, including administrator, are getting roaming profile errors when they log in.
Here's an example:
Windows cannot locate the server copy of your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with your local profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server when you log off. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.
DETAIL - The network name cannot be found.
This wasn't a problem until recently, perhaps when I shot myself in the foot by moving the server object into the TS active directory OU.
Background - SBS 2003 DC, Server 2008 member server as TS.
Poking around registry found no .bak sections in HKLM\software\microsoft\windows nt\cv\profilelist, as others have reported here.
I did make a GP change to exclude the directory containing OST files from the roaming profile - login times were getting stupid.
Weird thing is that even the administrator, which does not use a roaming profile, also gets an error that roaming profie couldn't be loaded.
