Temporary Profile in Windows 7 Business (QQps, it's Pro, again)

    Question

  • Windows 7 in a WIndows 2003 SBS Domain
    All XP and Vista machines login properly and load the profile from the appropriate directory as specified in the ADUC profile tab
    Windows 7 domain machines always create temporary profiles for local or domain users
    Error in event log states "Directory Cannot Be Found"
    Modified the profile path to IP address instead of server name....No lock
    specified \\Server_fqdn\Profile_share same issue

    Is this a domain schema issue?  Where does one get the schema update files?
    Do ADMX file need to be incorporated into the Group Policy?

    ANy help is greatly appreciated.  There are 5 machines waiting for deployment.

  • Was there a resolution to this issue? I'm having the same identical problem.

  • Does this fix work (1521 error)?  What profile are you suppose to delete under the ProfileList?  The wired thing is I can get all of the users My docs, pics, video folders come right over.  Just can't getting the roaming profile (desktop) to come over.

  • FWIW - in case anyone out there is as absentminded as me.

    I manage a small (12 users) Windows SBS 2003 domain with roaming profiles. Because of the size of the domain, I rarely use group policies, and configure accounts manually. A few months ago, one of our XP machines died, and I replaced it with new machine on which I did a clean install of Windows 7 Enterprise. Using the following document as a guide, I migrated the user profile from the XP version to the Windows 7 version:

    "Managing Roaming User Data Deployment Guide," which you can download here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=73760

    On page 33, there is a section entitled: "Windows Vista and Windows XP Roaming User Profile Interoperability"

    This went surprisingly smoothly.

    Fast forward to this week. I attempted to set up another Windows 7 machine for a new user. Created a domain user account, set up redirection for the profile and user data. Added the domain user to the local Win 7 machine. When the user logged on, however, she would only get a temporary profile, and her profile information would not save when she logged off, either locally or to the network share. As in the previous post, there was no problem logging on (just the popup in the systray about the temporary profile) and there was no problem with the mapping of documents and other network shares.

    I tried lots of things to no avail.

    When I followed the instructions linked by Nicholas Li, above, I opened

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

    looked at the CentralProfile data for the user in question, and smacked myself on the forehead:

    Apparently, Win 7 automatically adds the v2 extension to the folder path specified by the DC. The profile folder created during setup was named, simply, <username>, without the v2 extension. The user, by default, does not have permission to create a new folder.

    I navigated to the profile directory, renamed the folder <username>.v2, and now everything works beautifully.

    For crying out loud.
