Windows 2003 Terminal services on Vmware
Raoming profiles
Desktop and starmenu redirected.
I attaching the userlogon file for a windows 2003 terminal services in debug mode. To me the problem seems to be HP open view software and the files in the folder user\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\LiveContent\Managed\SmartArt Graphics\1033 .
Can any one tell me what these files are

I would have tested with the new user by copying the OLD user account information and in the new OU by giving the path of the new roaming profile share. Using the GPMC and I will also do the Block Inheritance on that new OU.

Moving this new user into that OU and changing the profile path in the User Account redirecting towards the new profile share. Now, I will try to login with this user to see if that makes any difference. If yes, then to narrow down I will remove the Block Inheritance and linking the OU with the previous Group Policy Objects, running the GPUpdate /force on the client machine and will make the user logoff and logback to see if the issue re-appears.

Just make sure Userenv Verbose logging is enabled everytime you do any testing.

Let me know your results.

Good Luck..!!

It doesnt happen for all the users but happens for few random users. So I need some one to look at the log and tell me why its just happening for these few users.

That's usually a DNS client error. This can be caused by a firewall or comms problem, or incorrect (read non-local in the sense of the DS' namespace) DNS configuration. Verify DNS with the following commands from the client:

nslookup -type=srv _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.domain-name.com
nltest /dsgetdc:domain-name.com

I would also check the Security Filtering on such machine on which users face the login issues. If any user logs in and logs off and any other logs on that client machine, does it behave in a same way. Difficult to judge what is running in your environment and how you have managed GPO Processing for the users.

Check with the new users please.. It's hard to find the issue with the Userenv Logs only.
