Domain Security Policy Seems to be Hit or Miss

I have two completely separate customers currently using domain security policies in their networks to limit their desktop privileges and redirect their folders. 90% of the time it seems to work fine. However, sometimes, users are logging in and getting a message stating "You've been logged in with a temporary profile" and all of their folder redirection is gone. Folder redirection is IP and I feel comfortable ruling DNS out. There are also no other obscure network issues and it seems as though I can see both the offending PC and the Policy Server when answering the service call. It's consistent at both customers.

The usual reason for this is disk quota for each user.  If they reach their quota, you will get this message.  Usually users with big profiles will see this.  Users with small profiles will not.  Just increase everyone's disk quota.

But there is no local disk quota set on the local machine. I don't have roaming profiles enabled either. Are you referring to a policy that sets the quota?

Not on the local machine, the server.  You mentioned that there is a redirection of folders.  Do they redirect their "My Documents" to a folder on the server?  This would explain the reason why redirection is gone.

Yes. I'm redirecting my documents and desktop at both customers. Where do I specify quota?

Thanks for the great read. I thought perhaps I was overlooking quota's but I wasn't. All of those quota policies are Not Configured so I think that rules out quotas. Unless there is a default quota set in windows 2003 server?

Not just in group policy, but did you also check the quota tab on your Win2K3 hard drives themselves?  This is where I found a default quota set up on my server.  I had no idea it was even there.

The only ways I have ever seen this "temporary profile" message appear is if you have - A) run out of hard disk space for the user to store files (profile, desktop, folder redirection) B) the desktop cannot connect to the server and C) the profile is really corrupt.

Would I need to set up quota for the first time on local disk or can I set up a group policy for it?  I need to set up some kind of quota for the users to get them to stop getting this issue
