A few observations off the top of my head -- is the account you created a local account on that computer, or a domain account?

Where and how did you create the account?

Is the computer you are trying to log in on joined to the domain? Is it attached to the domain's network (Ethernet,WiFi?)

Well I created the account in active directory and used a computer that has joined the domain. I can use the profile as  a super user to grant permissions but cant login with it.

Not sure what you mean as "superuser", as that kind of account no longer exists in Windows. If I understand this correctly, you log into the server with another account, and then supply the credentials for this other account when you need to do something?

 

Also, when you created the new account in Active Directory, did you create a new user account, or did you use one of the built-in accounts in the Users container? Is the account you are using a member of the Domain Users group?
