Windows 7: The user profile service failed the logon - on Domain

14 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise
The user profile service failed the logon - on Domain

I have the same issue the other user mentions. I can log on as a domain admin, but not as a domain user. There are only 4 profiles in the registry, with no .bak extensions:

1 is the default user
2 is the localservice account
3 is the networkservice account
4 is the local "Administrator" account

I was assuming the problem was with the default user, so I followed the article previously mentioned, and changed the RefCount from "1" to "0", and the State was already set to "0". I am still unable to log in with any domain account except for domain administrators.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Welcome TVbowman to the windows 7 forums.

What is the server that your trying to log into ? windows server 2008r2 or 2003 or what?
Also, are you trying to login to the console or rdp or just map a drive?
Also, is the regular user allowed to login via the security configuration of the server and AD?

Windows 7 Enterprise

This is a Windows 7 Enterprise machine in Active Directory. This is a domain user that has never logged in to this machine before, and we do not use roaming profiles. I am able to create a new account on the machine by logging in as a domain admin, and can log in as the local Administrator account on the machine, but not any domain user. This is a newly deployed machine using Windows Deployment Toolkit. Yes, the user should be allowed to log in where this machine is located in AD.
