Domain Users unable to log in -Win2k Pro

By steve ·
Windows 2000 Pro, SP1. When a domain admin logs in, everything is fine. When a domain user tries to log in, the computer does nothing and hangs with the message loading user profile. Has anyone seen this before? This happens if you're logging into the domain or the local machine.

Domain Users unable to log in -Win2k Pro

Hi,
Assuming you have already set logon locally rights to the domain users...
What is your domain structure? win2k/NT 4?
What about local administrator ?

I had a similar problem where policy settings showing a directory whre users has limitedaccess.

Good luck.

I know when I had this problem it was a permissions issue they needed Domain User permission. I never set up a local user. This was on a NT 4 Domain with a win2k Pro Pc.

If this is on an NTFS partition, it sounds like a local permissions issue. The users probably don't have the required access to the Documents and Settings folder where the profiles are stored, thus causing the computer to hang. First of all, disable propogation. Make sure everyone has read/write access to the Documents and Settings folder, and that everyone has at least read access to the All Users profile, and the Default User profile (which is hidden). For each user profile, give the Administrators group and that user's domain account full control and propogate that.

The fact that the computer hangs, rather than returning a failure message suggests that your users can't actually establish a proper connection to the domain controller. If the domain is W2K are the group policy settings set up to allow the users to login on this computer. What are the computer's local login policies? Is there any possibility that the domain admin is actually logging in as the local admin and that real connectivity isn't happening?
