Vista in domain always has temp profile.

Hi

We have a brand new SBS 2008 installation here, all the office computers were joined yesterday without a hitch but now one Vista (x86) machine always logs the user on with a temp profile.

I have tried this advice http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947242
But there is no SID.bak mentioned in the registry.

I have tried to remove the profile from the PC and removed all traces of the profile's name from the registry - http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_Vista/Q_23267849.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+domain+profil+temp+vista

But still when I remove the computer from the domain and try to rejoin it with http://connect it states that the user profile already exists. If I let it continue then we're back to the temp profile being applied every login.
Can anyone help, thanks in advance.

No it's not necessary. It just should be slightly different than before so there are no ties to the old name.

Does it make any difference which user you log on as? Are you using any form of folder or user profile redirection?

Try disjoining the domain, remove the account from the SBS console, delete or rename the "C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server" folder from the Vista machine, delete the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer registry key on the Vista machine, change the computer name, and then rejoin the domain using http://connect

Hi Rob

I've just disjoined the domain and renamed the workstation, should I try to name it differently again when I connect?

Hi Rob

It still wouldn't work for me so I restored from a 2 week old image and did it all again, thanks for the replies.
