Locked

User profile loads randomly

By naderihadi ·
Hi

I have just setup a Network for our office. There is one Win server 2003 and about 15 computers.
I am now getting feedbacks that the user profiles does not load randomly. I mean the network share drives or sometimes the logon scripts are not being executed.

Urgent help appreciated.

Thanks

Could be that the profile is corrupted.

Could be that the profile is corrupted. Try creating a new one and running in that for a bit. If things work ok then copy the information from the old corrupted profile to the new one, then delete the old.

Problem still exist

Ok let me put it this way...
The server we use, is installed with Windows server 2003. The client machines are using Win XP.
Now what I have done is that I have created 3 OUs for our 3 departments and in the users properties I have created a server path for their profile.
Then in their policies, I have created couple of VBS files to be loaded as logon scripts.
Now the problem is that when users logon, sometimes the logon scripts doesn't load, but windows task bar and other icons come. Other times the logon script loads and the welcome announcement comes, but it stops there and windows task bar and icons does not load!!
And sometimes EVERYTHING loads perfect !!!
I have checked everything, but cannot figure out why does this happen.
Urgent help is appreciated.

Thanks.
