I'm battling a hydra here, and I'd love a hand (and an aspirin)
We've just upgraded to Windows 7, and Server 2008. We've got users (students) using mandatory profiles signing in, and one of a few GPs (depending on location in our centre) having a homedir, printer and network share map, as well as the Documents library show the contents of the homedir.... most of the time.
We've got 40 student PC's, divided into 3 main OUs. Tutoring staff are also in their own OU.
There are multiple issues. If no-one tackles it successfully here, I'll divide them up into separate questions. A mixture of desperation and hope tells me to list it in full first, just in case there is a singular root cause.
Help with even just one would be appreciated.
1) Some computers refuse to let students sign in more than once. The virgin log-in on a PC is fine, but if they log out and log back in to the same machine, the User Logon service fails them. I need to log in as Admin and remove them through User Profiles before it will let them back in again. One even insists that I do it through Regedt32.
2) Some computers will refuse access to the Homedir share, but allows any other shares. (All shared by the same server). If staff (who have unrestricted access to student files) try, they can't access it either with their log-ons. The only solution we've discovered is to re-image Windows 7. This is less than desirable.
3) One network printer refuse to print, unless you uninstall/reinstall on the client machines. There are two other identical printers that work fine. Some of the PCs report an error, some just fail quietly. All 3 printers are shared by the same server.
4) One computer fails the User Logon service seemingly at random.
I hope I've been clear enough.
