I just built our new Remote Desktop Service environment on Server 2012. Everything went smoothly until I realized that I was always being assigned a temporary profile. I had User Profile Disks set up correctly, and other users weren’t experiencing the issue. I did find this error in the Event log:
I tried disabling and re-enabling User Profile Disk so RDS would verify that it had the correct permission to create the disk, as well as deleting the related User Profile Disk itself. All to no avail.
Eventually, I started looking around the profile settings in Windows and the registry and I found an entry in the Profile List (HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionProfileList) that matched the problem SID and noticed it referenced an invalid “ProfileImagePath.”
