user profile error

Last Modified: 2016-02-21
I have a weird issue, when a user logs on they get below error message

the user profile sercice failed the logon

User profile cannot be loaded

I checked on server and its creating blank profile

Few weeks ago we had to restore the server, so the profiles folder on server was one of the folders that was restored.

My suspicion is its lost its security settings but i am not sure what it should be.

This only happens when we reset there profile. For example if i was to rename a users profile from username to username.old then ask him to log on, he will get the above error message.

any ideas?
