Quick Fix: Access Denied to Romaing Profile – Windows 7
February 25, 2011 1 Comment
Just adding a new PC to an existing domain, the administrator logs on fine, but the user of the pc – keeps getting a temporary profile.
Checking the event logs you can see an access denied error when attempting to access the profile. Weird, because if you browse the existing roaming profile you can access it fine from the temporary one.
In this instance the user needed permission in the \\server\profiles folder to create a new folder.
Windows 7, will add a %username%.V2 folder when logging on for the first time and if it cannot create that folder you will see the access denied error.
Hope it saves you some time..
