Error 1314, "Temporary Profile" on Windows 7 client connecting to SBS 2003

I have a Windows 7 Pro client connecting to a domain account on an SBS 2003 server, and he's getting a "system error 1314" / "A required privilege is not held by the client" error when logging in (the error specifically occurs during the time sync process between client & server). He also gets logged in with a temporary profile. I don't know if the two things are related.

I've googled the hell out of this one and searched here on EE, but nothing I've tried has worked. The domain account is admin on both the local client and the server, FWIW.

Anyone know how to whack this one?

Ok..This is occurs because the user account is deleted from Users folder and it still has entry in the registry.
Take your system to workgroup.

You may open registry editor, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList. Find all the old/deleted user accounts ans delete entire folder in registry related to them.

Now take you system back to domain and login with the user account.

Pls reply for any queries.

The user account is still in the Users folder, actually. Should I still try deleting those registry keys?

Also, any thoughts on the 1314 error? I don't really care about it too much if it's not related to the user profile issue, but it'd be good to fix while I'm at it.

Thanks for your reply!

yes you can delete the user folder after copying all the required data and then you may delete registry entries from the above path. Regarding error 1314: A required privilege is not held by the client, i guess its related to the above. If you want your domain account to gain administrators privilege for this computer you may add the domain account to Administrators group by opening lusrmgr.msc in RUN command.

Select groups and then Administrator and then add.

Thanks. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I should be able to get to it shortly.

The domain account is already an Administrator on both the local machine and the domain, so I'm extra puzzled by the 1314 error.
