SYMPTOMS

In a domain environment, you configure the domain users to use mandatory user profiles. You set the profile path by using the %LogonServer% environment variable. However, when a user tries to log on to the domain from a Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based client computer, the user is logged on by using a temporary profile. Additionally, if the Do not log users in with a temporary profile Group Policy setting is applied in the domain, the user cannot log on to the domain.

Note This issue does not occur if the user logs on to the domain from a Windows XP-based or Windows Server 2003-based client computer.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the User Profile Service does not expand the %LogonServer% environment variable in Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008.
