  • A new profile is created, after logon in a domain

    Hi, all, now iam experimenting a strange problem. I have a domain with about 1100 workstation with Windows 2000 with SP4 and office 97, all machines are up to date with WSUS. The problem is in some machines where a new profile is created. For example, i have my pc with my profile created, everyday I logon to this workstation, if I logon with my account: domain\jcordova a new profile is created like that jcordova.domain. My default profile (the first) is jcordova, then when a new profile is created is jcordova.domain. and the domain is the NetBIOS name of my domain. Have anyone has idea of this issue. My domain is with Windows 2003 Enterprise SP1 DC, and my domain level is 2000 mixt.

    I didn't know this myself until recently but it is normal behaviour.

    This happens when a user profile is re-created, or same username but different local SIDs (changing the computer's role in the network can cause this)

      Hi, is the second time that i see this problem, the first time was in a migration in a other organization. But the duplicate of profile is rare.

      If u said that is a normal behavior do u have some KB of MS about it?, When i called to support Premier they dont help me enough for this problem.

          A new name for the user's personal folder -> like: jcordova.domain.008 (where the number is up counting every time). Did this happens once or twice or is it happening every day?

          When it does happen very often, and you are sure the computer's name or network-role has not changed that time, then a possible cause could be that the system is not able to dis-engage from the profile when you logoff. Try to find out why that is happening, check the event logs for profile problems. And make sure that no personal folders in your profile are shared over the network and can be in use bij others than you Self when logging-off.
