Terminal Session is creating temp profile everytime


  • Hi,

    The user when logged to terminal server, creates a temp folder in Users folder does not create a permanent profile, again when user logs in the profile is recreated in temp folder. Why is it happening like this?

  • Hello,

    The reason why a temporary profile is created is probably because the originally created profile did not remove properly at logoff. You can remove these profiles from the advanced system settings\profiles. Then try to logon again. There might be somee settings keeping the profile from unloading properly and you will have to investigate what this file/setting is.

    Another reason might be that if you have setup roaming profiles that the roaming location might not be accessable.

    For both reasons you could have a look at the event-viewer of the terminal server and see what is keeping the profile from loading correctly.
