access denied while applying computer settings

By bmgtweaked ·
I'm an admin over 1000's of W2K3 Servers. Recently I've started seeing an odd error where the users are trying to log in with their base AD accounts and after trying to log in for 10 to 15 minutes instead of authenticating the AD users account what's happening is the system is logging on the default user account which has no rights to do anything. Does anyone have any ideas?

You cannot create a network connection when you are starting a Windows XP SP2-based computer**7730

<added info>

You can configure a Group Policy Object (GPO) to perform the preceding behavior by performing the following steps:
1. Edit the GPO that you want to modify.
2. Locate the following section: Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System \ User Profiles.
3. Double-click Delete cached copies of roaming profiles (the Group Policy setting).
4. Click Enabled.

Log users off when roaming profile fails.

GPO Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, User Profiles

Logs a user off automatically when the system cannot load the user's roaming user profile.

This setting is used when the system cannot find the roaming user profile or the profile contains errors which prevent it from loading correctly.

If you disable this setting or do not configure it, when the roaming profile fails, the system loads a local copy of the roaming user profile, if one is available. Otherwise, the system loads the default user profile (stored in %Systemroot%\Documents and Settings\Default User).
