Windows Server Roaming Profile Problem
Posted on 2010-11-15
I am experiencing a strange problem after we format all of our computer on the network to Windows 7 from Windows Vista.
When I create a new user account in the AD, lets say user adam, i set the profile path to \\profileServer\profile\adam and I leave the home folder as Local path.
When login on Windows 7 Machine #1, it created the adam.V2 without problem. All the folders (i.e. desktop, my documents, downloads) are there. I hit log off.
Now when I try the same login without any setting change on Windows 7 Machine #2, it gives me an error
"The Group Policy Client service failed the logon - Access is Denied"
I then try the login on Machine #1 and it works fine. I try to create a file on desktop and log off, i check on the server, i can see the file is being copied to profileServer properly.
Any ideas why?

Its the same problem when I try first logon on Machine #2 then Machine #1. In this case, the Machine #2 will work properly but not Machine #1.
In general, the problem is I can logon 1st time a specific computer. Afterwards, only the computer I logged on with will function properly and all other machines will just show
"The Group Policy Client service failed the logon - Access is Denied "

AD is running on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise
Workstation is running Windows 7 Business Edition
All firewall has been dropped for testing
All computers able to ping each other

Anyone know what's the problem and how to resolve it?
