Windows 7 Profile issues
Posted on 2011-03-10
I have a strange issue that i cannot figure out. I have started deploying windows 7 x64 pro in our enviroment. I have had two users who everything seems to be fine intially, but they they go to do somethign that requires authenitcation and it seems their username gets cached incorrectly. I.E. - they open our SPWEB home page and then get a prompt for username and password, the username in the box is wrong, most commonly missing a .
our username names are first intial . last name (as an example Test User would be t.user).
However the name gets cached as tuser requiring they change it and enter their password to proceed, this reoccurs even if they click remeber password, and also occurs for things like outlook.
The first user i was able to correct by simply creating a new profile. However the second user i could not create a nre profile. No matter what i did when i tried to log in as the user after renaming the old profile to old_t.user (as an example) it would constantly log me in with a temp profile. I could not get it to create a new profile.
Any thoughts? The only thing i saw in the log was reference to it creating a temp profile, and i searched the registry thinking i might find a reference to the incorrect username that i could change, but no luck there either.
