Windows 7, users and Domain


I try Windows 7 with our environnement which is based on Windows 2003 SBS.

I have created a user on this server and i try to connect my test computer on this domain.

It recognizes the domain.

I have created the username on my PC with the short method (user in control pannel) and with ProfWiz. User is recognized too.

I restart the PC and i try to connect with the correct user. Username and password are correctly checked but i have already the message 'You have been logged with a temporary file'. Then a can't really organize the PC.

Someone can help me ??

Thanks and regards.

PS : I'm not englishspeaker then sorry for the message and fauts.

Hello and welcome.

Why not log on as a local user to configure the PC (rather than a domain user)?

If you want to log in as a domain user then you should first create that user on the domain controller.

Can you attach a screenshot of the user profiles? (computer > properties > advanced > user profiles > settings)

Windows 7

Hi sup3rsprt,

thanks for your help.

I must be connected with the domain to use our applications. If I connect my PC with a local user, I must give a username and a password to be connected with the domain and i don't like that.

i join a screenshot of the user profile definition.

Does the computer have an account on the domain? You need to create a computer account on the domain, and the join the domain from the computer, using an account with privileges to do so. You NEVER add the domain account to the local system before it is joined to the domain.
