- Vanilla RDS (not-VDI; traditional RDS)
- Server 2012 RDS session host
- Server 2008 R2 hosting user profile disk store over SMB share
- Computer account has rights to share and NTFS rights
Logging on to the RDS server the first time will work fine - the UPD is mounted successfully, and user profile persists logons\logoffs (usually).
After a reboot of either the RDS server, or the file server housing the UPDs, profile load fails and users are logged on with a temporary profile. This can be resolved by destroying the share and recreating it...even though no sessions or open file handles show in the console. Once resolved, UPDs are successfully re-mounted again.
I've noticed that the vhdx file itself on the file server is locked.
First error received - 1515:
Windows has backed up this user profile. Windows will automatically try to use the backup profile the next time this user logs on.
Then a 1511:
Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.

What's locked the file (try Process Explorer)? Probably want to ensure the file server's antivirus is set to exclude vhdx files if you've not done that.
I'm still not sure why I'd want to use User Profile Disks for a RDS session host environment, have had no issues (worth noting) with roaming profiles and redirected folders over the last ten+ years.
