Hi There Everyone,
I'm experiencing an problem with my terminal servers, first i thought the problem had to do with my installation but after a reinstall the problem came back.
When a user logs of from the server sometimes the local copy of the roaming profile remains locked, next time the user connects to this server he cannot map its local drives, there are some strange icons in the my computer area but i can't connect to the local disks though rdp.
When i go to the my computer properties and then advanced --> user profiles i see this profile but i can't delete it. After a restart i can delete the profile. This is very strange and i don't know how to solve this problem.
Hope u can help me!

Could you give me some more information from the event viewer please?
There should be messages when there are problems with your roaming profiles.
Is the NTFS security on the profile folder set in the correct way?
Let me know,

I found only one warning that is repeating and that has to do with logging of the user:
It sais that the register was in use when the user logs off, it will be locked till the process is stopped.
What NTFS does the profile folder need?
Thanks for your time:

Does the user use encryption?

NTFS security on the profile folder:
Administrators, System, Creator Owner: full control
Everyone: Write, Read, Read and Execute, List folder contents

I checked the permisions, it looks like there was a problem there, there was no groep called creator owner, i added it and gave it the right permissions, but it does not solve the problem, maybe i need to reboot the system to release the profiles but therefore i have to wait till the evening!
Till that time do you know what can be the problem with the error logged about the registry?

A reboot to apply the new security will not be necessarily. To be honest I’m afraid I can’t help you here. I have no clue at all.
I suggest to check every component from the start. The profiles, the TS settings, the GPO’s.
Maybe this will help you to check the profile settings:
Good luck! Hopefully somebody else steps up here…
