Remote Desktop Server 2008R2 - Loading Temporary Profiles

I have just updated our terminal 2003 server to Remote Desktop Server 2008R2, 2 of the users that were set up with roaming profiles always get a temporary profile whenever they try to log onto the remote desktop server, under user profiles it has the type of profile as Romaining and status as temporary.

I have followed this http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_23390545.html which seems to be exactly what I am getting however the regedit settings are removed as soon as the user logs off.

I have also seen this advice http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Remote_Desktop-Terminal_Services/Q_26502804.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+desktop+profil+remot+server+temporari however I am on a SBS 2008 domain and there is no remote desktop tabs in AD only the terminal server tab.

I am quite happy using local profiles as we one have one remote desktop server and was able to make all of the users local profiles except for these 2 users.

Any adivce would be appreciated.

I should add that they don't get a user profile under c:\users\%username% but rather c:\users\temp which is removed as soon as they log off.

And I have deleted the path under the terminal servers profile in AD, I have even pointed this to another location and it doesn't seem to work.

go look at the profile permissions ( the file permissions) and make suer they all OK and include teh correct user and system access

if TS has ANY difficulty in loading a profile (local or roaming) it creates a temp profiel jsut for the session and deletes it when the sesion end

There are no file permissions to change, I deleted the folder were the roaming profiles was stored for terminal server 2003 and removed the path in AD from the users.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

did you also delete all the profiles from the 2008 server??  new install or in place upgrade for the 2008?

from system properties, advanced, user profilles so that any profile on the server is removed in both teh registry and local file content.

Brand new server, fresh install, the profile is been created in the folder c:\users\temp and deletes itself when they log out, same with the registry settings under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList it creates a registry setting when they log in and when they log out the registry setting disappears.
In the registry setting when it appears it is pointing to the location of the roaming profile from when we were using terminal server 2003.

Is there somewhere else I should be looking in the registry settings?

so in AD on the profile tab the profile path: for the users in empty?

and on the  terminal services profile tab is empty

TS will try and use the profile settings in a specific order

my guess is you still have a windows roaming profile pointing to the old TS box in the profile tab in AD
