Windows 2003 Sever and crashed user profile

Question: Windows 2003 Sever and crashed user profile

I have two Win 2k3 servers - one as AD server and second as SQL server. Today something happens to the AD server but people had problem with SQL server too, so they went to reboot that second. After all they lost admin profile for SQL server (admin profile at the domain not local comp). I have no idea what happened, but when I arrived after each SQL server start and log on to the domain as admin I get message that server can not run admin.domain profile because some kinds of security issues (what kind of issues?) so it will start as temporary profile.

Under My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> User Settings I can see correct user profile but as Local/Backup not Local/Local. How can I restore correct profile? Any idea Thanks

Preferred Solution: Windows 2003 Sever and crashed user profile

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Windows 2003 Sever and crashed user profile

If its just a member server, I would stop the SQL Services first. pull the server out of the domain. Reboot the system. with the SQL Services still stopped, bring the server back into the domain. Restart the server again, then when you get back into Windows reconfigure the services as the were. I would assume that is going to be the cleanest way to get it working correctly again.

As of today, in our domain environment consisting of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 Enterprise machines, we are experiencing the "User Profile service failed the sign-in - User profile cannot be loaded" error message whenever a user tries to login.
This only affects users new to the particular machine. If they have signed on before and already have a cached account the computer logs them in with no issue. This is occurring on both Win8.1 and Win7 machines. We are an academic institution so this is becoming
a huge problem in our labs. Students generally use different computers so this is popping up very frequently. I have a solution for the issue. It appears that on the non-working machines that the "Default" user profile is corrupt. I have discovered
that if I find a machine, Win8.1 or Win7, doesn't matter, that is allowing first time users to logon I can copy the "Default" user profile and replace the corrupt one. I must first permanently delete the corrupt profile before copying over the new
one. I am doing this over the network by navigating the C:\users\ folder. Even this way is becoming cumbersome though as we have over 1000 computer in labs. I have googled and googled and I keep seeing the same answers offering various solutions, none which
are any more practical than my method. I cannot find information on a cause or a reason of why this would just crop up out of nowhere. I suspect maybe a Windows update but I cannot verify that yet. ... Read more

Dear All,

Im new to this so be basic with me!

I currently have a problem at work, where a user sends an email it gets stuck in the outbox folder until you click on another folder within outlook - I have the same problem with receving emails, you dont know you have a new email until you click on another folder, then suddenly you recieve a new email.

This is happening with four of our Windows XP machines, we have 6 Windows XP machines in the office approx, and 60 Windows 2000 machines, running from Microsoft Exchange Server 2003... We use the SMTP type for our emails..

I have been looking on the internet for months but not found anything, I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction

You could try calling Microsoft about this issue: since it was their fault they didn't include the CD, they should be able to ship you a replacement disc(s). Other than that I don't think you can get the CD without the licences.

Hi allI've got a form, the results of which need to be emailed to a one recipient. Originally I used Matt's FormMail script (Perl) - click here - which worked absolutely fine on my Unix host.However, the host which this site has to go on is Windows Server 2003, and I;m struggling to have as much luck on that...Originally I tried this - click here - an edited version of Matt's FormaMail, but think that's just for Windows NT (?) - either ay, I didn;t have any luck with that.So next I tried an .asp- script, again based on Matt's FormMail - click here This script works fine in IE, but I can't get it to work in FireFox, which seems a bit odd. I get the error - "Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0400' " (line 162)Any thoughts on why this might be happening, or any advice on other scripts which work on Windows Sever would be brilliant.Thanks a lot

One user has worked in our office for a about 5 years and her first computer on the domain started creating a folder with her name on our server. It would do it every day, after I deleted it again (I finally just gave up and hid the folder). I couldn't track down what software might be creating the folder, and since the folder was empty... I shrugged it off. I figured when we got her a new computer, the fresh install of Windows / Office etc. would deal with it.

Nope. The new computer does it too. Still, no big deal, and I consider it a secondary problem.

The main problem is that we're using Tasks more in Outlook for managing our workload. Except when we send her a task, she can't do anything with it. She can't even open it, let alone accept it or edit it...

This use has installed a lot of software over the years, and I'm wondering if her Windows profile has some junk in it that we just need to leave behind, and just make a new profile for her and import her e-mail from her old account. Or perhaps I should just delete her Exchange mailbox and recreate it, as was suggested to me by our IT company? If I have to create a new account on the domain and export her e-mail to that account, so be it. So I don't know if the problem is in her domain profile, or her Exchange account.

Any suggestions on this?

TIA.
 

Answer:Junk in user profile under SBS 2003

Hi.... I really haven't worked with SBS 2003, but I do work with Exchange & Server 2003 daily.

What type of profile do you have assigned to this user? How is the user setup? Are you using folder redirection? Any special logon scripts being pushed out?

What version of Exchange, as in what updates have been applied? When and how was her account in Exchange created?

What version of Outlook are you using? Updates applied?

The statement "Nope. The new computer does it too" makes me look strongly at her user setup on the server.

I think that's enough questions for starters! Sorry, but there are many possibilities on this one.

I have Windows 2003 Server (AD, file sharing) and I try to install OfficeMate software (MS Access database based software). So I installed OM software then I did folder share as they described here http://www.officemate.net/omkb/attachments/Sharing Folders-GUIDe1490aa8978d4255b616ed15e16cf462.pdf Then I went to the workstation and install OM on it (as admin) then switched to regular user. After this software gives me error about folder/path access. Support tech told me that I don't have full read-write access to the specified folder but I did what they described. I went back to the server and added user by his login to that folder with full access - no luck. I check if that user has read-write access to the folder from the Windows Explorer - I can create/delete file. Everything is fine (OM can run) when I will give to that user admin settings on that workstation.

Any ide what can be done wrong? Thanks

Hello,
I'm wondering if there is an easy way to keep the users old SBS 2003 profile settings and move over to the new SBS 2011? The new SBS is all set up. I'm able to unjoin the old SBS domain and join the new SBS domain with 0 issues. But How to keep all user setting on client PC?. There is only 1 login per PC. Is there a registry hack I could do to fool the new SBS? I know I could of migrated from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 but the server had tons of issues and didn't want the issues on the new SBS 2011 so I did a fresh install. All user profiles, AD setting, GP setting, Share drives, everything but user settings. Both SBS domain names are the same mydomain.local.

Hello my never-disappointing friends,

Today i am here to request help on this situation:
The old server has crashed. It was a Windows NT Server.
It was running a local domain but the backup is also fucked and as such, no information was retrieved

Afterwards, a new server with SBS 2003 Premium was installed, new domain name (mydomain.local).

After the crash, some computers were immediatly moved to a (temporary) workgroup so they could work together and stayed like this for a couple weeks. For these, the transition for the new domain was painless (using the http://server/connectcomputer migration wizard).

But one or two computers were left on the old non-existent domain.
I need to migrate these two babies to the new SBS domain.

The profiles are local, not roaming.

How do i migrate them?
TIA
 

Answer:SBS 2003: Migrate user profile from another domain (with the old server dead)

Remove the machines from the old domain using the old domain admin account then connect them to the new one.

We have users on Windows 7 Enterprise machines.  No one has a roaming profile. Users cannot install programs.  The users move around so they don't use the same machine all the time and there may be 20 profiles on one machine.  They don't
always logout but the machines are restarted once a week at least.   Occasionally we may delete profiles on the machines but this is a remote site so we seldom do.  Users primarily use remote apps. served up either by Citrix or web interface. 
Little is done locally other than printing.  All machines are imaged with the same software. All users do the same thing.  One user in an office of six machines, can only login to three of the machines with a temporary profile.  She has no
profile under Users.  There is no .bak registry entry.  I cannot locate anything in the registry that points to this user.  I checked HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE|SOFTWARE|MICROSOFT|WINDOWSNT|CURRENT VERSION|PROFILELIST.  There were 20 profiles but
none for this user.  No .bak profiles for her, nothing.  I found a post that suggested increasing registry size/reboot but still no clue.  This has been going on for months and she just let me know but I don't know if she called the help desk

Answer:Windows 7 Enterprise - User logs in with temporary profile - 3 different machines/no roaming profile?

Thanks.  She's working on the computer and does not logoff and back on quickly.  I just rechecked and there absolutely is not a .bak with her name.  On either computer.  I did find one for Temp and one for another user so now I have a
second user getting the profile issue.  I renamed that one and when the other user logged in, he got his profile. 

Guess I will just re-image the computers although I'd like to figure it out but I don't have the spare time to waste and don't want my user to keep getting the temp profile.  My company won't pay for the support and frankly, in all the years I've
been in IT, I've never had MS resolve one issue for me.  Not worth paying for.  Oh well, thanks for your suggestions.  If I have time to devote to this and figure anything else out, I will post the answer.

Answer:Windows Cannot Load The User's Profile But Has Logged On With The Default Profile

Corruption of the user profile can be a pain to sort out, especially if it’s the index file that’s failed. SOMETIMES, however, simply logging off, leaving the computer at the ‘Press Ctrl+Alt+Del’ screen for about 30 seconds or so, then logging in as usual, can solve this without any further intervention, so I’d suggest giving that a go first.

Further suggestions are a bit more involved.

Log in as another user with administrative rights (such as Administrator) and then open the My Computer icon and navigate to the local hard disk and into the Documents and Settings folder. Look there for the folder which has the same name as the user who’s profile cannot be loaded and go into it. You may have to unhide hidden files and folders (from the Tools menu, select Folder Options and then the View tab, then, in the Advanced Settings box, under Hidden Files and Folders select ‘Show hidden files and folders’) and then locate the file NTUSER.DAT and rename it NTUSER.OLD, then log out, and back in as the failed user. This should replace the corrupted file and allow you to log back in.

If that fails for any reason, again, log in as another user with administrative rights (such as Administrator) and then open the My Computer icon and navigate to the local hard disk and into the Documents and Settings folder. Look there for the folder which has the same name as the user who’s profile cannot be loaded and rename the folder; usu... Read more

Hello there,

Just a quick question.
I am in the process of moving my computers to Windows 7 platform. I have 2
servers. Windows Server 2003 and our New Server Window 2008.

I would like to run both servers simultaneously until we are totally comfortable using
Windows 2008.

My issues is this, When I am connecting to Server 2008, windows 7 seems to work
fine in access our files. However, when I try to access Windows server 2003, I keep getting errors and no access to older server 2003.

Is there a compatibility issue with Server 2003 and Windows 7? if yes, what can be done to fix it updates? Second would it be better to just upgrade 2008.

Answer:Windows 7 Compatibility with Windows Sever 2003

If you could be a little more specific with what types of problems you're having that would help. Also what is the network setup (is it a domain with ad, or is it just a workgroup).

At the office where I work we have about 20 computers ranging from win98 to 7 Pro x64 all "hooked on" to a windows home server. I use the quotations because it's not a domain and there is no ad, but half of the computers are backed up nightly onto it, and all of them have the network shares mapped with no problem. Windows home server is basically server2k3 with a different gui and a some stuff turned off. It installs as server2k3. So initially I would say you're fine and should be able to get it to work. Also what versions of 7 are you running. I've had to make some changes to get 7 home premium working on the network.

It is an HP computer that my brother brought over because it wouldn't boot. It was giving me a "bootmgr is compressed" message. So I got my Vista repair disc and uncompressed his drive. That got rid of that message but then it was giving me winload.exe errors. So I fixed that and FINALLY it booted up but when I clicked on his user account to log on, I get this error message. I have searched for answers. I came across a fix where you edit the registry if there is a duplicate entry in the profiles section but there isn't an extra one. I can boot into safe mode but I get no administrative tools, no ability to see the event viewer or manage users (idk if this is normal). I did a command I found to make the default administrator account active or something like that, and now when it boots up, there is his user account, and an admin user. If I click his user to log on, I get the error message. If I click the admin account, it loads, but it loads telling me the Vista copy is not genuine.

It continued to loop back to the logon screen even after rebooting. I ended up having to log on in Safe Mode, then do a system restore to restore back to the last restore point, which was a system checkpoint a couple of days earlier. That fixed it, and I've had no problems since. I hope that helps.

However the problem is that the solution needs a working administrartor account and the only account I'm able to log in is a standard one with no power to change account type or boot into admin safe mode/ do a command prompt whatsoever.

Would anyone happen to have an alternative solution that doesn't require an admin account to fix this?

3) The OLD USER PROFILE "m.linda" remains in the documents and settings BUT
- the domain is of a local computer (eg. SPARXX) and it no longer works with the (eg. CAA MAU) domain
4) The original "m.linda" user profile contains almost nothing in it (no documents etc)
5) m.linda is still listed in the userlist in computer management BUT NOT THE NEW mlinda

How do I change user profile "mlinda" (that has successfully retored everthing) back to "m.linda" since the new profile has everything intact:

2) How to ensure that the correct domain name is attached to the profile, by transferring all the data from THE NEW mlinda (eg. domain: CAA MAU) to THE OLD m.linda (that currently has a local computer domain: SPARXX). User profile, m.linda has to be attched to domain: CAA MAU.

3) Should I be backing up before eventhough the new mlinda is in super condition?

So I clicked ok then my user account came up somehow. I clicked it and it took me to desktop except that half of my programs were gone and like nothing worked, all my documents, downloads, pictures were all gone. I can't do anything on that computer, can anyone help please??(I have googled it but none of the solutions work so I want to find an answer specific to my problem)
 

Answer:The User Profile Service failed the logon. User Profile cannot be loaded

Most likely it is loading a temporary profile.

First try a system restore to see if can recover the user profile.
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-system-restore/

If system restore fails to load while in windows or you get errors, try it from the recovery environment http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial142.html
Here is another solution to try if SR fails to work for you, it shows you how to create a new user account, then log into the new account and copy your old profile over to the new account. This article is for XP but the process is the same for Vista. See "Moving to a new user profile"

Hey all 
 
Long time user of bleeping computer - gonna jump on in and join the fun and games!
 
Anyway I work in a small local computer repair shop and recently we had LOADS of Vista and Windows 7 machines with the error
 
"The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded"
 
We can repair the fault changing the profile from temporary profile path and swapped the .bak extension in registry. 
 
But what the hell is causing it? We have had two machine back in within two weeks of initial repair. We figured windows update at first but its not a given. 
 
cheers!

Today, Dec.20th, I wanted to create a standard user account for testing.
I named it Test.
When I tried to log on to Test account, I received the above message.
I used the tutorial compiled by Shawn but failed :
The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded. - Vista Forums

Problems :
1. I don't remember when was the last time I successfully created a new user account. Therefore, not knowing which is the good restore point for this matter.
2. The tutorial mentioned SID key with .bak at the end.
There are 3 SID keys, but none has .bak at the end.
3. name of ProfileImagePath is as follow ...........
a.1001 belongs to t-4-2
b. 500 belongs to Administrator
c. 501 belongs to Guest
I don't see the SID key for the Test account.
Therefore, I am stuck. not knowing how to proceed.

see screenshot :



Please advise.
Thank you.

P.S. Guest account was NEVER activated.

Answer:User Profile Service Failed the Login User profile cannot be loaded

Hello t-4-2,

The SID key for the user profile will not be created until the first time a newly created user account is logged on to.

You might see if this part of the tutorial may be the issue you are having.

I've searched for about a week now and have not found a solution. I followed the suggestions about the corrupt Profile and the .BAK SID, but neither are my situation.

My SID is fine - I did manage to find a temporary fix. If I delete and recreate the user in Active Directory on the server it fixes the problem. The problem is, I have 300 computers and every morning there are at least 10 - 15 users I must do this to. Not an ideal solution.

We bypassed Vista, so we had no idea that this Microsoft bug existed until last week.

Hi 

I have a very annoying problem on wireless tablets running windows 8.1 update. 
The tablets boot nice and fast (approx 30-35 seconds) to the ctrl + alt + del screen. 
However the network mandatory profiles used by students do not work for another 60 seconds after that. 
For the first 60 seconds or so after ctrl+alt+del shows up they get the error message "User Profile Service Failed the sign-in.  User profile cannot be loaded".  After that they
will login just fine.  
We've looked at procmon bootlogs and it shows BADNETWORKPATH the first couple of times you try to call the network path to the mandatory profile.  
We have tired setting various Group Policy Objects to force them to wait for the network based on various other posts on this  and other sites. 
Always wait for the network, Wait for group policy processing, wait for network timeout etc.  None of them seem to make any difference. 


Can somebody explain to me how to resolve this issue. 
Cheers

Hey Guys so this happened to my laptop the other day and I have only got round to fixing it now, I tried a few options like editing the .bak files etc with no luck so I recovered what I could and just deleted the user profile an that seemed to of fixed the issue.

I was just wondering if their is anyway to delete the data off the old user user profile without having to format the hard drive. As its still taking up space on my hard drive even though the profile is deleted.

Many thanks in advance

Damian

Answer:The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded

Hello Damian, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Since you have already deleted the user account through the Control Panel, you should be able to just delete C:\Users\(user-name) folder for the old user account while logged in the new account.

Hope this helps,

Hi, at windows start i get the message "The User Profile Service failed to logon. User profile cannot be loaded". There was no known activity last time system was up and running and it was shut down normal.

The desctop(HP) was delivered some years ago with V7 installed, ONE personal userID with admin auth. was created. Then a System repair disc was created.

What is the safest and simplest way(if any) to fix this problem and maintain the user data?(I did see support strings about this problem but they seem very complicated and confusing to me)

1. Shoud I restart system some functional key to get into safe mode or use the System repair disc and then what option?

2. Should I then logon to the default accountID(not known to me), and restore system to older backup point or shoud I try to repair the personal UserId?

Please advice

Hi
Recently i have had a few users in our domain unable to logon due to this error. To fix the issue  i have been deleting their local profile and then logging back on so they pick up the mandatory profile stored on the server and everything then works
fine.
Server is running server 2008 r2 and workstations are running windows 7 pro. 
I have just noticed the below error in the event logs on a few of the affected machines.
Windows cannot copy file \\?\C:\Users\lnyberg\AppData\Local\Temp\jds1029303519.tmp\ to location \\?\UNC\CM-DC01$NOCSC$\Profiles$\StaffNew.V2\AppData\Local\Temp\jds1029303519.tmp\. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security
rights. 

DETAIL - Access is denied.
Is this what could be causing the issue with logging on? I am a bit confused as to why it would be trying to copy a temp file back to the mandatory profile on the server.
Any ideas would be great
Thanks

Hello John,

You might see if the tutorial below may be able to help fix this for you. User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.
If not, then I'd recommend to turn off the Guest account, delete any 501 key below found for the C:\Users\Guest account at the same registry location in the tutorial above, delete the C:\Users\Guest folder, and restart the computer. This will give you a fresh start with the Guest account as if you never turned it on.

I would like to create a new user and migrate all data/settings/etc. from an existing user to the new user, on the same computer. Reason is some conflicting names between some computers on the same network and a Windows Home Server.

I tried changing the name of the user, but that doens't change the name of the profile. That created some confusion with Remote Desktop. Seems that even though I changed the user name, I had to log on via Remote Desktop using the old user name.

I've read about a method of creating the new user, logging on then off, logging on as the old user and just copying all the files from one user to the other after turning on show system and hidden files, etc. That doesn't migrate any settings I wouldn't think, only files. And another problem is there isn't enough hdd space to copy the profile, not sure what to do other than get a larger hdd, which I could do if totally needed.

I looked at the USMT, a little, but it looked like a lot of work for what I was doing.

I've also seen a 21 step method by Joshua Mouch which still involved copying the files.

Is there a way to just change the user name and then change the profile name that coincided with that user? That way no files are copied or moved, just changing the profile name associated with that user.

edit: I just found this, does this really work? That's all I want to do, change the user name and have that profile name match the user name.

I suggest checking the permission of the user profile folders and Default folder. Make sure the users has full control of their profile folders.

 
Meanwhile, ensure the users are the owner of the C:\Users\theirname\NTUSER.dat. Also, please put NTUSER.dat in the security software exclusion

Great find Flav!While I didn't resolve or have the exact issue 'Brooks-bilson's had, one of the comments on this blog entry (http://www.brooks-bilson.com/blogs/rob/index.cfm/2009/1/5/Fix-for-Vistas-The-User-Profile-Service-service-failed-the-logon-User-profile-cannot-be-loaded#c42AB7AE6-0B26-9AF4-6DB3C7B226C688B4) did have a comment that worked.First I renamed the file "\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\SqmApi\SqmData720896_00.sqm" to \Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\SqmApi\SqmData720896_00.sqm.bakInterestingly, this failed (bolded to help skimming folks).  However, actually moving the file out of the directory (effectively deleting it) did work.  This file was definately related to the problem, but exactly why W7 wasn't able to copy this (such as insufficient permissions or too long name error) is still unresolved.A little bit of information about the process Vista (and presumedly W7) goes through is well laid out in the referenced blog, and I recommend it for education.Unless it pops up again, I'm considering this issue closed and won't be monitoring it.  I hope everyone dealing with this W7 issue finds this helpful.Thanks again, Flav, for the find.D

Hello
we had a windows server 2008 Domain network.
now we have deployed a brand new windows server 2012 R2 forest.
so we must disjoin client computers from previous domain and join them to this new domain.
when users of this new domain login to their computers, new profile folder is created for them (e.g. c:\users\u1.newdomain.lab, but this folder definitely doesn't contain their previous profile folder contents (desktop, documents, App data....)
what is the best solution to migrate user profiles from each previous user to related new user without any problem ?
i tried copying the entire profile folder of each user & replace it on the profile folder new user, but some problem arises, when this new user tries to login using this replaced profile folder.
i am not sure is it right forum to ask user profile related question?
thanks in advanced

I will try to make this brief (but informative). On June 18th, there were Windows Security Updates made to my computer and since that time, my computer has crashed (repeatedly) and now takes up to an hour to reboot and never opens to my user profile (admin).  It always resets to a temporary user profile with limited access to files.  The first time it happened, I was going to use System Restore to go back to a point prior to the upgrades but all restore points were gone.  I have performed a clean boot, which made no difference; have started in safe mode with networking, which didn't help either.  I am not able to use System Restore in safe mode either.  I do not have the discs to do a repair on the system and now I am getting an error message that says hard drive failure is imminent.  I need to get my computer to a safe point prior to the 6/18 upgrades so I can see if there really is a problem with my hard drive.  It periodically and randomly will just shut down and restart. sometimes there is the blue screen of death but it passes so quickly that I am unable to see what the message says.  Other than the occasional blue screen, I am not getting any error messages.  The computer just locks up and shuts down.  Also - it freezes up CONSTANTLY. It may take twenty minutes just to read a few emails because it locks up so often.  It has taken almost half an hour just to type this. First priority is to restore the computer t... Read more

Answer:Windows Update Crashed Computer/Now Opens to Temporary Profile

Hi,

I am going to set up one of my desktops as a server in my room. Firstly is it ok to handle being a server;

athlon 1600
256 ram - going to upgrade
256 9200 radeon chipset
80 gb hd
NIC connected to router

My second query; I have two external HDs and which are packed with data, which = 500 GB, so I was wondering whether I can hook these two up the the sever via USB and then share them on the server so that I can access them though my latop and my other desktop.

Sorry if this is in the worng cat.

EDIT: NM, finally found some stuff in the kowledge base


First off, I'm by no means an expert on this, but I somehow got roped into doing it.

Anyway, I'm trying to install 2k3 Server - Small Business Edition on a brand new machine but I keep coming to the same error.

"Domain Configuration - Cannot run DCPromo because the SYSVOL partition is not formatted as NTFS."

Now, I know for a fact that it is formatted as NTFS because after the first time I saw this, I started over and made sure that I did a fresh NTFS format.

I'm thinking that the problem has to do with the fact that I'm installing this on a RAID 1 array on an Abit AA8XE - 3rd eye mobo (using onboard RAID controller), flashed to latest BIOS.

If I remove the drives from RAID and do an install, it works fine but then I can't add the drives back into RAID without dumping the data. Yet if I try to install the OS when the drives are already RAIDed, I get this error every single time.

Any thoughts?? I'm getting a bit annoyed at it, and of course can't find a thing in the MS Knowledge Base. I'm starting to think that it may be easiest for me to install the OS on a 3rd HDD and then ghost it onto the array. Would that work, or am I making this more difficult than it needs to be.




Thanks in advance.

Check under disk management .. are the lines blue...not green.. I've seen weird things where the c drive becomes an extended partition.... and this can cause problems.. but I dont under stand why you cant add the drive back to the array after.. thats the whole point of raid 1.. if one drive fails the data isnt gone.. you plug a new drive in and rebuild the array..

Good Day All -

Not sure if help is available for this, but here goes... We picked up a Windows 2003 SB Server. We're tiny and chose to continue using a workgroup and not a Domain. We ran DCPROMO and de-promoted the domain controller as the last in the domain. We were then able to change the workgroup accordingly and all was happy and well. Now we are getting a system shutdown periodically. It comes from SBCore and states system must be a domain controller and will shut down in 60 minutes. ??? Tried to run DCPROMO again to remove domain, but according to the wizard we are not on a domain wehich is correct we are using the server in Workgroup mode.
Can anyone shed some light or point me to where we can get some furthe info?

Very Much Appreciated.

I am having major trouble with Word! After giving up on Word 2013 and installing Word 2016, the problems have not gone away. [See this thread Word 2013 behaving strangely trying to exit in Business Applications forum for what I've been dealing with.]

A VERY helpful user has suggested that I may have a corrupted user profile. My wife's profile may also be corrupted, since we both have the same problems with Word. I've been advised to create a new local limited user profile, and I'm about to do that. But I think I also need to put the necessary documents and files and folders that I use from my present Users\Tom\Documents folder, etc., into that new profile, don't I? In order to actually run anything like Office 2016 and actually have access to any of my existing *.docx or *.xls documents?

If so, what's the right way to do that? When I browsed the web an hour or so ago on how to create the user acct I skimmed past a document that I think said I should NOT move or copy some of the NTUSER files (not sure that's the exact file name but it's close) into the new profile because those might be what's corrupted. But now I can't go back to where I found that document and read it, and I'm scared that I might "populate" the new user account incorrectly and either not fix my problems or make them even worse. It seems clear to me that if I suspect my existing profile is corrupted, a "bulk copy" or "bulk move... Read more

Strangley enough we can log into this server using terminal services remotely from any other pc using these same usernames. I cannot figure it out at all, the server concerned is just a file server, not a DC.

any suggestions??

Is there a solution to this issue> After I add a new user (standard or admin) via the control panel, through my admin account, the new profile does show in the logon menu, but.. I cannot sign in. I receive the message 'The user profile service failed the log on'. MS's official solution does not help, as there are no duplicate entries or entries ending in 'bak' as they state for me to fix.
It would seem the MS help centre is only willing to reply to very general user questions, or cut and paste already-made past solutions.
I have noticed that this problem was also noted in windows 7. No user profile other than the name. Does anyone have an idea of the possible reason for this error? Windows restore and repair do not fix the problem, and sfc scan does not detect errors. I cannot create a new a new profile and delete the old one. One link suggests using safe mode to fully create a new profile, but that it will not fix the problem. Any ideas?
