Hi ALl,

Have a 2008 R2 server. Not sure why but the server is unable to create profiles (local and roaming) when logging into.

Event vwr :
Windows has backed up this user profile. Windows will automatically try to use the backup profile the next time this user logs on.

Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.

Any ideas?

Reboot your machine and log on as different user. Make sure the different user account is a administrator (added to the Administrators group). OR you could log on in to safe mode if you know how to.
Open Explorer and open C:Users. Delete the directory of “problematic” user profile and “Temp” directory.
Run the registry editor (RedEdit.exe)
Go to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionProfileList
You need to find the correct SID and delete it. To make sure you are deleting the right one, check the key ProfileImagePath which has the profile path.
Reboot the computer and logon on as the user as before
