When you log on to a Windows domain, you may receive the following error message:
After you click OK or the 30 second clock times out, you receive another error message:
The server registers an error code associated with the users profile.
You may receive a similar error message in Windows NT 4.0:
This issue can occur if you configure a user record to have a trailing space in its user profile path.
To resolve this issue, remove trailing spaces, and then log on again.
NOTE: You cannot see the trailing space unless you highlight the profile path.
For example, if you use the following profile path:
the subfolders look like this:
NOTE: You can use leading and embedded spaces, but you cannot use trailing spaces. This behavior is consistent with Windows NT 4.0.
An administrator can specify where a user's profile folder structure is stored by editing the profile path item of the user record structure. You can use the Active Directory Users and Computers Utility to edit user record structure.
