  1. Upon creating a new user and attempting to login, I'm receiving the following error message: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded." I'm running Windows 7 x64 SP1. My current setup is: C: drive (SSD) Program Files, Windows, ProgramData. X: drive (HDD) Users, and everything else. I use the Administrator account as my account. To set up the system, I created a temporary user, logged in, changed the registry to point the Users directory to the X: drive (and moved the Default and Public folders to the X:\Users directory). I then enabled the Admin account and logged in with it. This created my profile on the X drive. However, I'm trying to create another user account to test with. The account is named "Test". I receive the quoted error message upon attempts to log in. I checked the X:\Users folder and there is no profile for the Test account, not even a folder for it. I tried copying the Default profile and renaming it, but no dice. I also verified that the folder seemed to have the proper permissions (Full Control for System, Administrator, Administrators, as the Test account was an admin account as well). There is no entry in the registry under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\ for the Test user, so I got a utility that could find that users' SID and created an entry for it, but still, I receive the original error message when trying to log in. Any ideas?
  2. We have been experiencing an issue on one of our servers where the system will lock up and not allow any new windows to be opened, however, programs that are already open are still accessible from the console. No one can connect to the server using the MAS application when it is in this state. The only fix we’ve found so far is to reboot the server. Event Viewer is showing errors 2019 and 333. 2019 states: Event Type: Error Event Source: Srv Event Category: None Event ID: 2019 Date: 2/10/2010 Time: 8:36:10 AM User: N/A Computer: TUCKER Description: The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the pool was empty.

I’ve been researching this for a while (it’s been happening sporadically the last few weeks), and so far have not found a solution that works. I’ve tried moving our page file to different volumes, as someone suggested, with no success. This problem seems to be occurring sometime at night. Our backup runs at 9pm daily. The only things I can think of that has changed on this machine is that the backup software was updated to the latest build (we are using Acronis True Image Echo Enterprise Server) and we installed a tax table update. I believe that the updates were done at least a few weeks before the problems started happening. Now this issue occurs once every 3 or 4 days. I’m not sure if it’s related, but it sounds like it could be. What would you suggest looking at? I’ve already examined non-paged memory and handles via task manager when the backup has been running, and I haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary. I should add, this server is running 2GB of RAM (not exactly the newest machine). Thanks in advance.
  3. I'm running this on a 2008 box, but it is applicable to Vista/7 as well, and this forum has better response, so I posted here. I'm running a scheduled task everyday to copy my backups to offsite media. It's a robocopy batch script. It'd be nice to see the progress of the script rather than just seeing robocopy.exe running in task manager, so is there any way to get the scheduled task to start in a command prompt window? If so, how? Thanks, Drew. PS: I tried running "cmd.exe /K c:\mirror.bat", which seems to work fine when I run it from the Run menu or from the command prompt, but doesn't show the command prompt window when running a scheduled task. I'm running the scheduled task as the same user I'm logged in as.
  4. Ok, I just did another test of my own (I created a shared folder on the C drive, which is a standalone disk) and copied the file to it, and it went just fine. The volume I'm trying to copy to is a Windows software Raid 1. According to disk management the disks are healthy. I'm still convinced that the problem was caused by 2008 (since 2003 had the same setup without issue). Is there any way to fix this?
  5. I had to disable the firewall (or make an exception for the needed port) to run this utility. Here is the result: [148] local port 58677 connected with port 5001 [ ID] Interval Transfer Bandwidth [148] 0.0-10.0 sec 109 MBytes 91.5 Mbits/sec Seems pretty good to me. Unfortunately, with the firewall off, the problem persisted. The machines are in a workgroup. I hate to say it but I don't really have a clue about any of the other things you're talking about. I have noticed that whenever a file is copying it seems to copy in bursts. It starts fast (like I originally said), then drops, then goes for a few seconds at the slow speed, then stops, then starts, etc. Watching the network tab of Task Manager shows that network utilization drops to 0% for a few seconds, then back up to whatever it was using 50% or so.
  6. The server is running SP2 and my workstation was running Vista SP2 but is now running Win 7 RTM. The connections are wired and running at 100mb.
  7. I've had it up to here with this **** network transfer problem! I had Server 2003 installed on my server and all was well. Now I'm running Server 2008 x86 on the server and I can't seem to fix this issue. Issue is this: transferring files TO my server from my workstation (was running Vista x64 until yesterday, when it is now running 7 x64, but the problem occurs on both) is very slow. The transfer starts off fast (10 to 11MB/s) but then drops to about 2.5-3.5MB/s after about 5 or 10 seconds. I am trying to copy my Outlook PST file (800MB +/-). I copied the file to the server from the workstation (using the workstation's Explorer) and it goes slowly (like described above). I copied the file from the server to the workstation (from the workstation's Explorer) and it is fast. I copied the file from the server to the workstation (from the server's Explorer) and it is fast. I copied the file from the workstation to the server (from the server's Explorer) and it is fast. So this only occurs using Vista/7's Windows Explorer. However, Vista was copying files at a fine speed to the server when it was running 2003. Ever since the 2008 installation I've been having the issue. So I'm fairly certain it's a 2008 problem (or at least a problem with my install). I've tried numerous registry tweaks and NIC settings. I have two NICs in the server, and the issue occurs regardless of which one i'm using to copy the file. I've enabled TCP offloading, disabled it, changed max IRQs, changed MSCSS, changed TCP ACK, changed 2008's TCP autotuning, and countless other things. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?
  8. I need my Windows Server 2003 box to shutdown automatically at 4:00AM. Initially, I installed a shutdown program and created a scheduled task to initiate the program with a force shutdown switch. That didn't work, apparently. I ensured that it was being run as a server administrator (my admin user name), and it was. Next, I created an autologin for my admin account so I would be logged in to the desktop when the task was run. Still, the problem remained. Next, I uninstalled the program and created a batch shutdown file (shutdown.exe /f) and scheduled it to run at 4:00AM. Still, the next morning when I came to check the machine, it was still on. I'm out of ideas. I checked Event Viewer, and according to it at 4:00AM my user account that was running the Scheduled Task was successfully logged off. I guess for some reason it's logging me off rather than shutting down. IDK why, since whenever I manually initiate the scheduled task the server shuts down immediately. Does anyone have any ideas? EDIT: Problem solved. I was only running the "/f" switch, which apparently forces an immediate logoff. I was under the impression that I could just use "/f" without the "/s", but this is not so. Running shutdown.exe /s /f solved my problem.
