"Windows cannot load the user's profile" - "Insufficient system resources"
Posted on 2011-05-13
In a business environment with about 25 users using RDP to connect to terminal server sessions. The terminal server is running Windows Server 2003 R2, Service Pack 2.
These are local profiles, no roaming profiles.
This issue only affects 3-4 users (including me). A server boot temporarily solves the problem until a few days later. This issue just started a week or so ago. We had a similar problem a few years ago so we already have the Hive Cleanup service running, to help cleanly logoff users.
The exact error message is ""Windows cannot load the user's profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system DETAIL - Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service."
The C drive is about 50% free, so that's not an issue.
Since it seems to be affecting the same users, and we all use different machine types and OS's (Dell PC with Windows7, Dell PC with WindowsXP, thin-client machines, remote Dell laptops) I'm wondering if the RDP version might be an issue?
While the error is active (this morning) I will try updating the RDP to the latest exe file on my machine.
