Today I've tried to setup an AD domain in my home environment and am unsure of what's happening. I've set up folder redirection, roaming profiles and connected a "base folder" for the user profile.
I can login just fine, but the system is unusable. All subfolders are working as expected, but the taskbar is greyed out, no icons showing except for the small icons for "background apps running". I cannot rightclick anything - does nothing - and cannot open the explorer for example and not the trash bin.
The only way to run programs is by using the execute functionality built into task manager - which I can access via CTRL+ALT+DEL.
Event viewer does show a few application errors after login for StartMenuExpercienceHost.exe, SearchHost.exe and SystemSettings.exe. I am however lost to why this might occur.
Logging in with a local, non-domain user works just fine.
I‘ve set up a fresh domain using Windows Server 2022 including a DNS server. The client gets the DNS server as primary and my router as secondary.
I‘ve created domain users to login with and joined the AD domain using a windows 11 client. I‘ve not yet added any GPO‘s except for folder redirection so everything is default regarding that.
The user accounts are standard domain users as well and have only been assigned a mapped folder to drive letter
Z: and a Roaming profile.
