Win 8 login to WS2012e domain creates temp profile every time

Recommended Posts

Am ready to pull my hair out.  Have a new Win 8 client machine.  Can login to local admin account and install the WS2012e connector successfully.  Upon reboot, if I login to domain\user, it logs in but says 'You'vbe been signed in with a temporary profile.'  No matter how many times I re-login or reboot, this issue persists.  Cannot seem to find a way to resolve this.

 

If anyone has ideas, I'd greatly appreciate the help.  Thanks!

Not sure if this will help, but I configured folder redirection and roaming profiles before I attempted to connect a client machine. That said, I don't know why you would be getting a temporary profile without, as it should work if the connector worked OK...

Dang, sometimes getting old is a real PITA. I had this happen to me some years ago, but I just can't remember what was the cause, nor the resolution. If my brain twigs, I'll post back. I guess the main thing I can say is that it is resolvable.

 

Oh wait, one thing to try: create a completely new user ID and try it.

On you domain controller. Follow these steps:

1. Click Start, point to Programs - Administrative Tools - Active Directory Users and Computers.

2. Click the Users folder, right-click the user account that you want, click Properties, and then click Member of tab.

3. If the Guests or Domain Guests group is in the Member of list, please Remove it.

4. Click Ok and exit the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.

Are you deleting the old profile before attempting to proceed again?  By this I mean on the Client and in AD.

This is great info. Though in my case, I needed to delete the GUID of the profile in registry and re-login to the client PC again with the domain user account. Very odd.

Marky9074 - thanks for sharing these links.  Particularly the WGS one.  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't confused by Folder Redirection before reading this.  I recently enabled it on one of my family member PCs.  A remote PC joined to domain on a Direct Access connection.  it wasn't until I looked in the client PC's c:\users folder that I noticed I was unable to access any files (i.e. My Documents) as is typically possible with a local user account.

Yeah that threw me too. Previously (before a server) for my own laptops I have regularly moved the user folders to a different partition, so that if I did a ghost restore (of the OS partition), my documents were not overwritten. I also put the Outlook pst file there too. But they always seemed to 'appear' with local paths as if they were symbolically linked. With folder redirection it seems it is quite literally a redirection, which I guess is the desired behavior.

I would never move the Users Parent folder to a different path, documents, that's something different.
