Eventid 1060 – Terminal Services User Home Directory was not set

Eventid 1060 (source:TerminalServices-RemoteConnectionManager) is logged in the System logs with the following error:

The Terminal Services User Home Directory was not set because the path specified does not exist or not accessible.
The default Home Directory Path was used instead.

I checked the following:

  • Does the user have a connected homedirectory is the RDS Session?
    Yes, driveletter is connected and path is accessible.
  • Is the TS User Home Directory set through Active Directory and Computers?
    Yes, Remote Desktop Services Profile tab shows correct Home Folder settings.
  • Is the TS User Home Directory set through a machine group policy?
    Yes, it set to the same settings as Remote Desktop Services Profile tab.

So it looks like it’s being set on twee places, I choose to start with removing it from the Machine Policy.

You can find this setting in:

Computer configuration
  /Policies
    /Windows Components
      /Remote Desktop Services
        /Remote Desktop Session Host
          /Profiles
            /Set path for Remote Desktop Services Home Directory

I set this policy to not configured.

Go to your RDS server and do a gpupdate /force to make the new setting active.

Users still have the Home Folder connected, but when you now check the System log it should not have a new entry for this little problem.
