ERROR: Some users have been signed in with a temporary profile.

    Question

  • Dear forummembers and moderators,

    Some users/userprofiles on the domain recieve the following error when they try to log in to a domain computer and/or the RDP-server. It should be concern useraccounts that have been removed (by accident) and recreated (with the same name); Could that cause the error? I've tried to troubleshoot this by creating a new userprofile, where I didn't recieve a message.

    There is a profilepath configured for each user, (\\serverdc\profile$\%username%) so that each account is a roaming account.

    The operating systems are Windows Server 2016 (RD server) and Windows 10 for the domain computers.

    Kind regards,

    Ruben

    Ahhh I hate this error... Anyways... :)

    I can caused by renaming useraccount too, like if they change the samaccountname in AD and it mess up the profile on the system. You should get RID of this temp profile from local disk and registry. I suggest read below article since the process is the same for all OS's:

  • You can navigate to the user profile events on the machine wherein users are trying to login , Also you need to make sure that roaming profile path is accessible for the users from the machine.When roaming profile path is not reachable based on the conditions what we have setup in GPO's , It will give you temp profile to logon.

    Alternatively you can check if the user profile list is having good entry in registry.

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\
