I just recently purchased a new lenovo laptop and joined it to my home windows server (V.2019). Upon logging in I attempted to go to Lenovo Vantage to do something, I discovered it was nowhere to be found on my profile, so I searched for the windows store and that was nowhere to be found either. I switch users to a different domain user and was able to access both Lenovo vantage and Windows store. I just now tried to open Defender and it could not find an application to open it, odd. I logged into a different domain joined PC with the same profile and was able to access everything without an issue. I unjoined and rejoined the new PC and reattempted but am still having the same issues. The profile is a roaming profile, don't know if that's the issue.

    Hello @Colby ,

    Thank you for posting here.

    To better understnad our question, please confirm the following information:

    How do you configure user roaming profile?

    The option 1
    74715-pro1.png

    The option 2
    Via GPO: Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\User Profiles\Set roaming profile path for all users logging onto this computer

    If you set roaming profile on user Properties, on new domain-joined machine, you need to sign in and sign out and sign in again to check roaming profile.

    If you set roaming profile via Computer configuration GPO, on new domain-joined machine, you need to sign in and sign out and run command gpupdate /force through CMD, sign out then sign in again to check roaming profile.

    Reference

    By the way, do you have RDP environment?

    Hope the information above is helpful.

    Should you have any question or concern, please feel free to let us know.

    Best Regards,
