Windows 7 Professional and Small Business Server 2011 Essentials RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently replaced our Windows Small Business Server 2003 with a Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials server using the same domain name and same computer name. When I tried to join an existing Windows 7 Professional computer to the new domain, i kept getting trust relationship errors. I logged on to the workstation using a local login and rejoined the domain but now all the items on the desktop have disappeared including the connection to Windows Live Mail. Can I restore this?

  • Hi,
     
    According the issue, I suspect that your machine created a new user profile in this case. The user profile path is stored in registry, here is the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList(check the picture).  Please check the value of ProfileImagePath.
     
     
    Also, please take a screenshot of C:\Users and post is here.

  • I agree - this will have created a new profile but once you have identified the profile you can go into the old users profile and copy the shortcuts from the desktop folder into the new one.
