"Your user profile was not loaded correctly" with roaming profile in AD domain

    we recently had to replace a defective PC and the new PC came with Vista
    preinstalled. So we thought it would be a good idea to try it out.

    I joined the Vista PC to our 2003 Server Active Directory Domain (previously
    a 2000 AD, but the 2000 Server is now only a Fileserver for the roaming

    Now everytime I log in, I get a speech bubble in the lower right telling me,
    that my profile was not loaded correctly, and that I'm now signed in with a
    temporary profile.

    However, when I go to a Windows XP PC right next to the Vista PC, I can log
    in without problems, and my profile gets copied from the server.

    I found several websites about this problem, but all sites I found deal with
    stand alone PC's where Vista has to deal with a corrupted user profile, and
    the user should delete his User directory and delete a backup registry key
    of his unique identifier.

    However, this is of no help in my case, as Vista doesn't have my user
    directory in the "User" directory, and also not the *.bak entry in the

    Even newly created domain users get a temporary profile in Vista, and if
    logged in via Windows XP, it neatly creates a roaming profile for the user
    and stores it on the server.

    How do I convince Vista to just get the roaming profile?
    I already forced Vista via Group Policy to wait for the network before
    logon, to no avail.

    With kind regards,

    P.S. The new PC had a Windows XP downgrade license, so it's currently
    working with XP, but that's not a "future proof" solution in the long run...
