Windows 2003 terminal server joined to a Windows 2003 AD. By Computer GPO TS is configured to use roaming profiles. I need to create a new local user. When the local user firsts logon (the logon which creates the profile) the logon fails because the server can not find the roaming profile on the file server. Then it attempts to open the local profile. This fails, so a temporary profile is assigned.
These are the attempts made to resolve this issue.
1. In My Computer properties, copied another profile and assigned permissions to the new local user. The profile copies successfully, the new user has full control over the copied profile.
2. Directly copied another profile and then manually assigned the new user’s permissions. Full control was the permission given.
3. Created a share on the terminal server and then in the user’s property assign the local share as the roaming profile path.
How can I get a local user a logged on?
