User Profile Problems...
Problem Description:
Having a tough time fixing new user profiles on Win2K Pro workstations. Initial user is fine, however, any additional users produce a Event I 1000 Profile error.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event I 1000
Date: 1/10/2002
Time: 12:34:43 PM
User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer: COMPUTERNAME
Description:
Your roaming profile is not available. You are logged on with the locally stored profile. Changes to the profile will not be propagated to the server. Contact your network administrator.

DETAIL - Access is denied.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event I 1000
Date: 1/10/2002
Time: 12:34:44 PM
User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer: COMPUTERNAME
Description:
Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.

I searched everywhere andno resolution can be found. In MS Knowledge Base (Q28915 it says apply SP2...which I did and it still doesn't work.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US; Q289158

I've also tried creating profiles for new users with correct W2K security permissions and that didn't work. This happens on very single W2K Pro client we have!

There are no group policies or any roaming profiles defined in AD or on any Domain Controllers.

Please HELP! =)

Problem Area: Administration: profiles
Frequency of problem: Always Happens
Operating system / version: Windows 2000

W2K User Profile Problem...

by bohicam1 In reply to W2K User Profile Problem. ...

When you create a new user, do you have the correct syntax for the profile? It should be "\\servername\profiles\%username%" without the quotations. Secondly, are you trying to place these profiles on a central server so that you ahve roaming profiles? If not, do not give them a profile path and it will install to their default location on the local machine (usually C:\winnt\profiles\ )
Lastly, if you want them on a central server, is the profiles folder on that server shared out?
Good luck!

W2K User Profile Problem...

by Griz1975 In reply to W2K User Profile Problem. ...

This issue happens on every W2K Pro client we have. After a clean rebuild, I would add DomainName\User-A to the local Administrator or Power Users group...and everything works OK. If I add any other Domain users (i.e. DomainName\User-B, DomainName\User-C, etc) to any local groups, that specific Event I 1000 error appears during their login. It does not affect the first Domain User nor the Domain Administrator account in any sense. All of our clients are connected to the Domain.

(3) - The folders are as listed:

Administrator
Administrator.computername
All Users
Default User
User-A

I'm trying to re-route this PC to DomainName\User-B. That user is in the Local Administrator Group on the workstation, and upon login I get that Event I 1000 error. This occurs for each subsequent person I add after that first user (User-A) was added. I don't have any Roaming Profiles setup on the server or within Active Directory...it's just not allowing the user to create a local profile on the workstation. The Windows Security on the disk has NOT been modified in any sense. I have the built in Security settings that Windows 2000 Professional creates during installation.

I did just notice something that I haven't before. The domain controller in which people are authenticating on is running Service Pack 1. I may have to install Service Pack 2 on the server to see if this resolves the issue. I remember in reading MS Knowledge Base Article (Q28915 that it says the client should have SP2 installed. What about the authenticating Domain Controller? It says nothing about that! Hmmm, interesting.
