User Profile issues with Windows XP and AD network.

I have one user that when he logs on to computer A, his profile is not created on the local machine. He can log in to other computers on our network and his profile is created.

Other user can log onto computer A and their profile is created.

Computer A has all of the latest MS updates.

If I give this user admin rights to computer A, his profile is still not created.

Can anyone help with this issue?

The failed logon should also create and error in the event viewer, try to logon, let it fail, logon with an account the works, launch the event viewer and post the error thats created during the logon process.

What is the error the user gets?  It might be that the system has a "reference" to the user's profile that points it to another existing one.

check the local profile list (properties of computer/my computer/advanced/user profiles settings
See whether this user is listed there.  Did the user's username change?

Remove the existing profile on computer A for this user--do this by rebooting the system and logging on with another user--you must reboot first--then delete the profile--then try logging on with that user and see if it now loads--it may be that on this system the profile is corrupted.

I would also verify that the user on Computer A has the same permissions that it has on all the other systems. If the level of permissions is different on Computer A than what it was created with it will cause problems.

Check the OU for computer A as well.
