    Posted: 04 Apr 2011 at 4:46pm
Using Profwiz 3.0. and Windows 7 SP1 on a 2008 Domain. The user was a local user going to a domain. I never had issues with XP.

Issue: After running migrate.exe and the pc reboots and the user logs in, Windows displays a message in the lower right taskbar saying a temporary profile is being used please reboot or contact your system admin.

I tried rebooting a few times but no luck.

I have a basic straightforward profwiz profile. (Share profile, disable local account, force join computer name to domain, reboot)

I checked the local c:\users\public...profwiz log and everything says successful.

Any help would be appreciated.

You should check the event log to see why the user's profile is not being loaded and they are getting a temporary profile. See here.
 
Sharing the profile is not a straightforward option and is not recommended. Please see "Profwiz.config Reference" in the User Guide.

My mistake. I am not sharing profiles. I'm doing all the defaults and only thing I do is disable the local account and force join the domain. (I do not want them logging back in locally with the local account.). I was also logged in as admin doing some things before I logged off and logged in as the user.

- I logged off as a local admin account.
- logged in as the local user account to be migrated.
- ran migrate
- force joined
- disabled local account
- rebooted

Any other logs to look at? I saw the migration log created during migration and it shows success for everything.

I have a feeling it may be a local service that was running that possibly wasnt shutting off when I logged off as local admin (and then logged in as him to run the migrate.exe). The first link was very helpful. I ended up manually copying over his data and re-creating his profile.

I'll test on another machine this week. I'm sure it probably was a service or something that was running. After rebooting though no services should be running. I wonder if that service started up again and somehow was tied into the old account.

Anyway thanks again for the links.
