    Having a problem with a roaming profile that will not load on a new computer I am setting up for an existing user.
    Basically everything works as expected with his current PC. The profile is loaded from the server at login and saved at logout. Lean and clean.
    I have now a new machine for said user and have joined the domain. However when I log in I get the following error messages

    Event ID: 1515
    Description: Windows has backed up this user’s profile. Windows will automatically try to use the backed up profile the next time this user logs on

    Event ID: 1511
    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.

    Haven’t changed a thing to the user definition in the AD. The old computer still operates normally but the new one won’t load the profile no matter what (although I can successfully browse to the network share from the session so the folder is definitely accessible).

    I have tried

    • disjoining / rejoining the domain
    • disk check
    • virus check
    • disabling the roaming profile for said user – still having a profile error
    • creating new user -> everything works fine

    So it’s basically this existing user which is affected.

    Interrestingly enough I have the exact same problem on two completely unrelated sites. The only commonality is that they are both SBS 2008.

    Both machines Win 7 32 bits SP1 – Server 2008 SBS

    Any idea / suggestion most welcome
