The user Profile Service service failed the logon.

I have replaced my 2003 32 bit server with a 2008 R2 64 bit server, I robocopied the files including copying documents and setting into Users, I have renamed the new server to the old servers name and used its IP address.

Now when users try to login they get the error ( i am the only users that can logon successfully )

The user Profile Service service failed the logon.
User profile cannot be loaded.

Check out this link as it seems to relate to the issue you are running into. As mentioned in the post perhaps there is a security issue on the files found in the Default User folder.

Have you definitely copied the NTFS permissions correctly?. Also have you re-shared any folders that were previously shared on the old server?

Hi BigPoppa : I have followed that and it didn't help

I find it strange that it says service service but I don't see any service it is referring to

The service that is failing is called "User Profile Service". The wording is odd just because "Service" is in the name of the service, resulting it two "services" (excuse the pun) being displayed.

You should be able to locate the name of the service by clicking Start>Run. Type in "services.msc" and then scroll down to where "User Profile Service" is located. Make sure it is set to automatic.

Have you checked event viewer in Computer Management to see why the service is failing to start?

How are the users trying to login? Is this via a Terminal Server or Citrix/2x? Do these users already have a user profile created on the server? If they do have a profile already created on the server then rename the profile to something else to allow a brand new profile to be created. For instance the username johndoe. Browse to c:\users\johndoe and rename "johndoe" to "johndoe.old" and then have "johndoe" try logging in again to see if you get the same issue.

If you copy a profile path out of a user's AD object, can you browse to this path (or at least the parent folder) as an admin?

Thank you both for answering.
It was a permission in the main default folder as Poppa suggested.

Thank you
