VHD ProfileDisk is not created on Windows 7, the backend device is Net App
The "LwLLogonNotifier.log" found in c:\windows\temp\profileunity directory has following errors:
Detected error in command line result. Throwing Win32Exception.
Failed to run process. Error: The sector size of the physical disk on which the virtual disk resides is not supported
Failed to create VHD. Error: The sector size of the physical disk on which the virtual disk resides is not supported
Unable to continue with ProfileDisk operations. Exiting
This is known Windows 7 limitation. This was addressed with Windows 8 and Server 2012.
The workaround is to change bit sector size on the NetApp device or use different operating system.
Please refer for more details to this LwL KB:
Note: Also windows VHDs "Thin Disks" (Expandable) are not supported by NetApp. The "Thin Disk" configuration should be done on NetApp device itself.
