Specs: Windows Server 2008, P4 4Gghz / 4Gb
PROBLEM:

When logging onto a Windows 2008 Terminal Server remotely (must be a remote logon) error is displayed “The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.” And logon does not go ahead.

When removing the profile path from the 2003 server, Active Directory Users and Computers, logon, properties, profile tab – logon CAN go ahead but this is NOT wanted – the use of the profile is needed.

Help!

SYSTEM SET-UP

WINDOWS 2003 SERVER – Domain controller – users active directory users and computers to create logons to the server and has defined profiles. When creating a profile the profile path is on this server \\compname\cfg$\Manprofiles\

Terminal Service User Profile is also set to \\compname\cfg$\Manprofiles\

There is a field below this in Active Directory that is labeled Terminal Services Home Folder which is currently set to “local” which is blank and will only accept a dedicated address on the server itself – i.e . D:\\..\Manprofiles\


Then there is a WINDOWS 2008 STANDARD, SERVICE PACK 2 pc set-up as a TERMINAL SERVER. Roles activated are:

File Server
Terminal Server
Web Server

When logons are created on the 2003 server, they are then created on the TERMINAL SERVER using create new user, browsing to the Domain Computer and selecting the user account wanted.

They are then given the account type of REMOTE DESKTOP USER.

When going into CONTROL PANEL -> USER ACCOUNTS -> CONFIGURE ADVANCED USER PROFILE PROPERTIES -> PROFILES -> CHANGE TYPE there is a greyed out (not able to be selected) Roaming Profiles option and a selected Local option.

After attempting the remote logon, the following error shows up on the 2008 Terminal Server under Server Manager:


EVENT PROPERTIES – EVENT 1060, TERMINALSERVICES – REMOTE CONNECTION MANAGER

The Terminal Services User Home Directory was not set because the path specified does not exist or not accessible. The default Home Directory Path was used instead. User Name: Data Director Domain: CMOUKDF

oOo

If the Terminal Services Home Folder path, on the 2003 server under Active Dir Users & Comps, is set to:

d:\cfg\Manprofiles\DFSTAFF.man

The same error appears:

EVENT PROPERTIES – EVENT 1060, TERMINALSERVICES – REMOTE CONNECTION MANAGER

The Terminal Services User Home Directory was not set because the path specified does not exist or not accessible. The default Home Directory Path was used instead. User Name: Data Director Domain: CMOUKDF

I believe that the User has to have full control over their home directory, it's not the same as a mandatory profile. Do the users have full controll of their home directory?
