We have one user migrated from asia domain to new domain and when he tried to login in one of the server he encounter these error (see pic remote_desktop.jpg) when I investigate the error I found that his profile SID has .bak in the last line (see regedit_loginerror.jpg) so what I did is I remove the .bak word in the registry editor and when he tried to login again there was no longer error.

Please advice if you already encountered this issue when user was migrated and what would be the best way to do it to avoid in future.

This issue is a fairly common one I've run across when switching domains or creating new profiles.

Dmwynne, I already seen this steps and same way i have fixed the issue. My question is how can I prevent this in future because we have 30000+ users still need to migrate to new domain. so its difficult for me to perform same to each and every user.

When you dis-joined and re-joined to the new domain did you rename the profile manually or use something like ADMT.

Have you tested on other machines, did they have the issue?

It could be deleting the profile is causing an issue.  Impossible to know without testing.
