The logon hook detection encountered a problem…

The Citrix Profile management service detected a problem while setting up logon notification. The Citrix Profile management service requires either that:

  • The installation path contains no spaces
  • 8.3 filename support is enabled on the volume where the service is installed

Reinstall Citrix Profile management to a path with no spaces or enable 8.3 filename support on the volume where Profile management is installed.

A problem occurred while querying Active Directory for information about the logged-on user. Citrix Profile management will not process this folder. A Windows user profile will be used instead.

Ensure that the computer has a functioning network path to a domain controller. Ensure that the computer has adequate system resources. Check the event log for errors and take any corrective action indicated, including Profile management troubleshooting procedures.

21

Determining the DNS domain and ADsPath failed…

This issue can be caused by a limit on memory allocation, as described in the Microsoft TechNet article 263693.

The resolution for this issue is described in the Citrix Knowledge Center article CTX124953.

22

File access was slow. User <user name> experienced a delay while file <file name> was fetched from the user store.

The user tried to access the file but Profile management detected a delay in this operation. The user received a warning message. This may be due to antivirus software preventing access to the file in the user store.

Consult the Profile management documentation for troubleshooting and configuration advice on enterprise antivirus products.

23

File access may be denied. User <user name> experienced a long delay while file <file name> was fetched from the user store.

The user tried to access the file but Profile management detected such a significant delay in this operation that access may be denied. The user received an error message. This may be due to antivirus software preventing access to the file in the user store.

Consult the Profile management documentation for troubleshooting and configuration advice on enterprise antivirus products.

24

RevertToSelf failed with error code <error code number> and Profile management was shut down.

Some logon and logoff processing is performed using impersonation. The RevertToSelf function is normally invoked when impersonation is complete. On this occasion, the function could not be called so, for security reasons, Profile management software was shut down. The user received an error message.

If you suspect a security breach, follow your organization’s procedures to address it, and then restart Profile management.

25

The profile for user <user name> is managed by Citrix Profile management, but the user store <user store name> could not be reached…

The Citrix Profile Management Service on this computer could not reach the specified user store. This is normally because of a network issue or because the server hosting the user store is unavailable.

Ensure the server hosting the user store is available and the network between this computer and the server is operational.

26

The default profile location <location name> is invalid. Profiles in this location cannot be monitored correctly…

Profiles on this computer must be located on a disk mounted on a drive letter (for example, C:).

Move the profiles on this computer to a disk mounted on a drive letter, and restart Profile management.

27

The profile folder for user <user name> is not present under the default profile location <location name>…

In the registry, the location of this user's profile and of the default profile do not match. This can occur, for example, if profiles are moved between different volumes on the machine running the Profile Management Service.

Ensure this user's profile is located under the default folder location, using appropriate tools if necessary so that the profile data in the file system matches the profile's registry settings.

28

An error occurred while trying to reset security permissions on the registry hive for user <user name>.

It is likely that there are permission issues with the registry in the default or template profile used to create this Citrix user profile.

If appropriate, reset the security permissions on the user's registry hive in the Profile management user store using a third-party utility such as SetAcl.

29

A template profile path is configured but no profile was found…

The specified folder cannot be used in the Template profile setting because it does not contain the file NTUSER.DAT. This issue commonly occurs when the full path of the NTUSER.DAT file is configured instead of the folder containing NTUSER.DAT.

Note that the Template profile setting does not support expansion of Active Directory attributes, system environment variables, or the %USERNAME% and %USERDOMAIN% variables.

Check that you have configured a valid path to the folder containing the template profile. Check that the path contains NTUSER.DAT, that this is a valid file, and that access rights are set correctly on the folder to allow read access to all files.

33

Citrix Profile Management created a profile in the user store from a local profile at <location>

A profile was created in the user store from the location indicated.

None. This message is for information only.

34

Citrix Profile Management created a profile in the user store from a roaming profile at <location>

A profile was created in the user store from the location indicated.

None. This message is for information only.

35

Citrix Profile Management created a profile in the user store from a template profile at <location>

A profile was created in the user store from the location indicated.

None. This message is for information only

36

The existing profile folder for <user> could not be prepared for this user's new Citrix mandatory profile. The user will be given a temporary profile if possible.

Citrix mandatory profiles use copies of a template profile for each logon. Any existing profiles are deleted and the Citrix mandatory profiles are copied from the specified template location. This process failed.

Delete any existing profile folder manually. You may have to restart the computer if files are locked by another process that causes the deletion to fail. Ensure the template folder exists and the user has permissions to read its contents.

37

The user store <user store path> for user <user name> could not be reached. A temporary profile will be created for this user and no changes will be saved to their profile in this user store.

The Citrix Profile Management Service on this computer could not reach the specified user store. This is normally because of a network issue or because the server hosting the user store is unavailable.

Ensure the server hosting the user store is available and the network between this computer and the server is operational.

38

The profile for user <user name> is managed by Citrix Profile management, but the user store <user store path> could not be found.

A temporary profile will be created for this user and no changes will be saved to their profile in this user store.

The Citrix Profile Management Service on this computer could not find the profile in the specified user store. This may be because of a network issue or because the server hosting the user store is unavailable, but it may also be because the profile in the user store has been deleted or moved, or the path to the user store has changed and no longer correctly points to an existing profile in the user store.

Ensure the server hosting the user store is available, the network between this computer and the server is operational and the path to the user store points to an existing profile. If the profile in the user store has been deleted, delete the profile on the local machine.
