    What's the problem or what have you tried?
    (Most profile problems are really authentication problems but most
    authentication problems are really DNS issues.)

    ipconfig /all DCDiag
    NetDiag
    set logonserver
    GPResult.
    RSoP (in AD Users and Computers)
    GPUpdate
    DCGPOFix (be careful)

    Last time I have a high number of problems with user profiles.
    I'm looking for for something like compare user profiles with default
    profile to find issue...

    GPResult and RSoP are the two main tools for that.

    "High number of problems"? What does that really mean?

    You have a lot of bad settings being applied or they aren't
    getting applied at all?

    If things get desperate then DCGPOFix.exe will set you back
    to defaults (be careful.)

    "High number of problems" - High number of users reports diffrend problems
    with profiles. In most case delete current and create new profile help in
    most case.
    Some times there is:
    - Very long logon...
    - Hang up application...
    - Problem with applciations / settings in application etc.
    In most case new profile help. But delete old and create new it's not
    solution. I have to analyze ane find reasons of this problems...

    You problems are most likely DNS related.

    Post your IPConfig /all.

    Likely you have set your client machines to use a mixture of internal
    and 'external' DNS servers -- doing that is never reliable.

    Otherwise you likely haven't properly registered your DCs with DNS.

    Every DC should pass a complete "DCDiag /c" with no FAIL or WARN
    messages.
