When connecting to a computer via Remote Desktop, you may get an error that says:
“Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded. Check that you are connected to the network or that your network is functioning correctly. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.”
This usually happens because the computer you are trying to log into has too many users connected. One or more of them will need to log out.
If having somebody log out is not possible, you may want to disconnect idle user sessions. This can be checked under the “Users” tab on “Windows Task Manager” on the computer you’re trying to remotely connect to. If the “Status” shows as “Idle” for a user, you can select the user, and then select “Disconnect“. You may need to ask somebody with admin rights to login to the computer and disconnect the idle users.
Another option would be to use the “logoff” command to remotely log users out of the system. For example, the following command will remotely log session “TEST01” out of the server with a computer name of “SERVER01”:
logoff TEST01 /server:SERVER01
