I have a server 2003 AD environment with 5 clients in the domain. When I took over the network I realized the previous IT person had created an IP based external drive for the roaming profiles, my issue is this;
Each time I have to upgrade any component of the server that requires a restart, I have problems logging into the server with the admin account. It forces me to use a local account because it can’t load the admn profile. In the past this has resolved its self but now its stuck this way. I tried power cycling the external with no result. Is there a procedure for a correct restart with external drives or a command to initiate the external profiles? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
updated with server erros:
event id 1505 source: userenv user: administrator
event id 1508 source: userenv user: system
Also the external is RAID 1 configuration. Question? If one of the drives fails will the other drive maintain the profiles functioning? or does this drive need to be replaced for the roaming profiles to be accessible?
The external drives in RAID 1 configuration have one drive listed as failed and the other working drive is full at 911.38Mb and has only 20Kb of space left. This was causing an error at logon on the server that there were insufficient resources available to load the admin profile, so it loaded a local profile. I suppose the only benefit of having an external roaming profiles is to have a separate device loading the profiles therefore not burdening the server. Thanks for links sflatechguy….maybe this post will help others in the future. I’ll update later when I have the drive replaced.
