2012 R2 RDS Temporary Profile issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having the same issue: I have a new Windows 2012 R2 server running AD and RDP. Everything was working great until I rebooted yesterday, and now when I log in at the server, it logs me in as an RDP user and a temporary profile.    My external RDP users log in just fine, and their profiles are okay.  What is Microsoft doing about getting a fix for this?

  • I have done the registry fix on your link:  IT DOES NOT fix this issue on my Windows Server 2012 R2.  I STILL get a temporary login.  Even if I create another admin user with local rights and domain rights, and log in at the console, it will log in the first time and create my profile, but after I log off that user, and try to log back in, I get a temp profile.

    ALSO, please note that in addition to the temp login, the 2nd issue is that I am being logged in as an RDP login account (in fact, when I look at the RDP connections in my Collections list, one of them is me), while I am, in fact, logging at the console.

    Microsoft needs to come out with a hotfix on this.  There are many posts of frustrated users with the same issue on a Windows 2012 R2 server running RDP.

  • Hi Ginny,

    Thank you for posting in Windows Server forum.

    For a try I can suggest you to install below hotfix (as it’s for server 2012 but for a try). Just letting you know to try to install and check if it helps in your case.
    FIX: You are logged on with a temporary profile to a remote desktop session after an unexpected restart of Windows Server 2012

    Hope it helps!

  • Dharmesh,

    Thank you for your post, but the Fix you suggested (kb/2896328) is not applicable to Windows 2012 R2.

    Anyone have any other suggestions??

  • I have an idea.

    Could Microsoft please publish the R2 versions of these hotfixes?

    We're dead in the water, and inaction by Microsoft is making this solution look bad.

    This thread is from December of 2013.  That's more than 6 months ago:

    Thank you.

  • Hi ,

    Our problem is that "Windows 2012 remote desktop services, user profiles are being created as Temporary Profiles"

    I guess still there is no solution for this problem . We really stuck in with it. I applied this "" hotfix and that article ""  but didn't t work. So does anyone have an idea to solve that or did microsot make any solution for that ?
