  • Hi,

    It seems the user profile cannot be created on the Windows Server 2012.

    Please check the permission on C:\Users\Default folder.

    - 'Everyone' and 'Users' (Modify, Read & execute, List folder contents, Read)
    - 'SYSTEM' and 'Administrators' (Full Control, Modify, Read & execute, List folder contents, Read, Write)

    If the issue persists, please try to copy the default user folder "c:\users\default" from another server that doesn't have the problem to the "c:\users\default folder" on the server having the issues.

  • Hai,

    I have the same issue on Windows Server 2012R2 which is installed with Citrix and tried the above solution. Unfortunately not succeeded.

    When ever users logon, using temp profile.

    Could you please advice with more solutions?
