The user profile serviced failed the sign in. The user profile cannot be loaded.
Posted on 2014-02-20
Hi. I have a Server 2012 that I am attempting to log into with a newly created domain admin user. I get the following error:
"The user profile service failed the sign in. The user profile cannot be loaded."
I have seen this before and resolved this same issue with a standard user account on a computer not joined to a domain (Windows 7). As a result, I am aware of the Microsoft KB article that references Windows 7 and/or Windows Vista and the two profile paths in Registry Editor for the one user account and having to manipulate the value on one of them to correct the issue, etc.
I have, however, not seen this issue on a Server in a domain environment as it relates to a domain user. When I view the profile paths in Registry Editor, I do not see this domain admin profile path listed in there so I gather it did not create the user profile at all yet at first logon. What gives? And any documentation or articles relating to Server 2012 with this issue?
