ITsVISTA KB-Link: KB2664408

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a forest that contains several domains. For example, the forest contains contoso.com, child1.contoso.com, and child2.contoso.com.
  • You set up a terminal server in one of the domains. For example, you set up a terminal server in contoso.com.
  • You configure the terminal server to set a variable %userdomain% roaming profile path for users who try to log on the terminal server. For example, you configure the server to set \\server\share\%userdomain% as the roaming profile path.

In this scenario, the variable %userdomain% roaming profile path is not resolved correctly. For example, when users from child1.contoso.com or child2.contoso.com try to log on the terminal server, the roaming profile path is set to \\server\share\contoso.

This issue occurs when a user tries to log on the terminal server from a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Vista

Note: The expected roaming profile path is \\server\share\child1 when users from child1.contoso.com try to log on the terminal server and \\server\share\child2 when users from child2.contoso.com try to log on the terminal server.

On a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2, all the TCP/IP ports that are in a TIME_WAIT status are not closed after 497 days from system startup. Therefore, TCP/IP ports may be exhausted, and new TCP/IP sessions may not be created.

For example, you try to use some remote administration tools to manage a Windows Server 2008-based domain controller that has been running for more than 497 days. In this example, the remote administration tools cannot connect to the domain controller.
