  • XP Profiles

    Hi All,

    recently I have been experiencing the following.

    Every so often when a user logs onto the active directory it creates a new profile, and does not use the security settings applied on the local profile.

    The user's active directory account is granted admin access on the local computer, but when XP creates a new profile (ignoring the original) the user looses the admin rights.

    To resolve this - I make the user restart the computer and re-login.

    The user has a 3 profiles on the computer.

    userX\xyxCompany.com
    userX\computerY
    userX\xyxCompany.com

    I figured out that the larger profile (5mg) is the correct profile.
    I have deleted the smaller profile, but from time to time it simply recreates itself and the problem.

    They are NOT roaming profiles.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards

    Did you successfully logon to the computer using the domain account?
    Anyway, if you are using domain, why are you not using roaming profile?

      Yes upon restart I am able to login using the Domain.

      We are not using roaming profiles because there is limited room on the AD server.

      Thoughts & Suggestions?

                Hi Guys,

                sorry I have not responded to these posts promptly.

                I should have added that this machine had a complete failure and so I installed a new motherboard then ran a WinXP repair install.

                The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server XYZSERVER1$. This indicates that the password used to encrypt the kerberos service ticket is different than that on the target server. Commonly, this is due to identically named machine accounts in the target realm (XYXCOMPANY.COM), and the client realm. Please contact your system administrator.
                Am I to understand that I have to remove the computer from the AD, then re-add it?

                And finally would this error cause WinXP to not log into the AD and thus create a new profile?
