Consider the following scenario. In a Active Directory domain environment, you configure the following settings for users in the domain:
You enable the User must change password at next logon setting for users in the domain.
You configure the users to use roaming user profiles.
Then, a domain user logs on to the domain for the first time from a Windows Vista-based client computer. In this scenario, Windows Vista does not download the network-based default user profile from the from the Netlogon share. However, Windows Vista loads the local default user profile.
Note This problem also occurs when the user password has expired and the user changes the password before logging on to the domain.
This problem occurs because of an error in the Lsasrv.dll file.
If the user changes the password, the default and roaming profile paths are not set correctly before Windows Vista loads the user profile. Therefore, Windows Vista loads the local default user profile.
