Problem with Redirected Profiles in Windows Server 2008

Our network consists of six Windows 2008 R2 servers.  We have implemented redirected profiles using a group policy.  This works on four of the six servers - when I logon to the four on which it works, my full profile is available and works.  On the other two, however, I'm able to logon using my network credentials, but they fail to load the correct profile.  Does someone know what might be going on and what we may have done incorrectly?

Have you checked if the GPO is applying on the other server?
There could be a security or WMI filter preventing it from applying on that machine.
Scott SilvaNetwork AdministratorCommented:
Do you get a temporary profile on the 2 servers or just the wrong one?
Do those 2 servers choke on every user or just you?
CraigAuthor Commented:
Robert:  I've checked the GPO settings and it looks like it's being applied consistently across all servers.

Scott:  We just get the wrong profile, not a temporary one.  Right now, it appears just to be one of my admin user accts.

If it is just one account, then you might have a corrupted user profile.

Is it roaming profiles, or folder redirection? They are different and might need different solutions...
CraigAuthor Commented:
We're using folder redirection and not roaming profiles for some reason.

If the right profile isn't being loaded on just two servers, how would we go about fixing that?
Scott SilvaNetwork AdministratorCommented:
I'm wondering if those 2 servers are set up with manual changes to the folder redirection?
First thing to try is logging in with another user and see if it works right...
Second would be log into those servers as a different admin and remove the bad profiles, then log in again and see if it fixes itself.
Folder Redirection Logging


Errors and failures of Folder Redirection processing are logged as events in the Application Event log. In addition, Folder Redirection can provide a detailed log to aid troubleshooting. To create a detailed log file for Folder Redirection, add a value to the following registry key:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Diagnostics

Set: FdeployDebugLevel = Reg_DWORD 0x0f

A log file, Fdeploy.log, is created and stored in the %windir%\debug\usermode\ folder.

You can look at the registry settings and see if maybe permissions are broken or fix the entries...
