xp user profile and norton ghost

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm having a little problem.

Where I work, we are using norton ghost 8.0 with norton console to create image and deploy station. I have several image depending on which lab I ghost. But some labs, after beeing ghosted, "f***" the user profile.

What I mean is in the basis, I have this in doc&settings: (french windows)

- Administrateur

- B3300 (that's the lab number, we create 1 user with the lab number)

and the system user profil (default user, network...)

Then, I create an image and ghost it over the other 30 platform (with a ssid change using ghostwalker like every other lab).

Now, when I login in administrateur or B3300, it does this:

- Administrateur.B3300-XX (well, Administrateur.computername) instead of login in with the administrateur profile.

It does the samething with any already existing profile. What's weird is that I don't have that problem in all lab and they all run the same windows.

It also says to windows that now, I have 2 administrateur profile but if I delete one in windows, it remove the other also (not the folder, only the profile in system properties). If I relog again, it will recreate a new Administrateur.computername.

I've put some picture to show that.

Now, I would like to know what is causing this and how to solve this.

Thanks

Windows will create a profile folder such as Administrator.XXX when it creates a new profile and notices the folder it wants to create already exists.

I'm curious if the Administrator profile exists or not in the System Properties of your master computer (the one you are creating the image from) and on an imaged computer (log in as someone else besides Administrator and see if it exists).

In the original computer, yes those profile existe, else I won't talk about them.

In the one ghosted that have those problem, no if you login as someone else, the profile aren't here in system properties but once you login, this is when it create a new one (well, double it) and see it in double, triple, quad (depending how much time that happen).

If I ghost one that is like that and deploy again, it will triple, etc...
