I have a small AD domain with Windows 10 Pro x64 and Windows 8.1 Pro x64 clients. The clients experience intermittent failure to load their roaming profiles as discussed in great length in this over five-year-old thread:

Why is this still a problem five years later?

What can I do to prevent this?
