My Win2K3 Server is creating a new user profile when it boots up, instead of using the existing profile.
For example, assume the profile is called "USER"
It is creating a new profile named "USER.DOMAIN"
The new "USER.DOMAIN" profile appears to have migrated all the settings from the "USER" profile, so that it's almost impossible to tell them apart.
My problem is that this profile doesn't seem to be able to access the DHCP nor DNS server (as well as other services) and the other Win2K3 server, which is the BDC.
I have tried to remove the HDD from the machine and on another windows machine, remove the directory "USER.DOMAIN" and place it on a USB key. Then put the drive back in and boot up again. It just creates another "USER.DOMAIN" profile again but this time all the settings were also lost as if it created a completely new USER profile from scratch.
I would need to have it revert back to the original "USER" profile so that everything is functional again.
I would also like to know how this happened and why, if someone would be kind enough to explain that to me.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: this is a user profile issue not a user account issue.
