I'm needing to connect NT4 workstation to Solaris 2.6 for file and
password sharing.  I'm running an image of the CVS code from Monday and
*almost* have everything working the way I want.  Except.... 


I've been through the archive, faq, docs, examples, etc.  No luck.  I saw
someone mention something about NT not creating its profile dirs on the
samba host and that it must be done manually, they referenced a previos
email for more details that I couldn't find.  I created a profile and
profile.pds in my home dir.  This stopped the cannont create dir error on
the NT client but now it claims roving profiles are not available and a
local copy will be used instead.

I've tried the logon path in users home dirs, I've tried the Profiles
share, I'm sure it something I just overlooking.

Heres some snips of my smb.conf file.  This contains parts of other
solutions found in the archive.  I really don't like the writable = yes
guest ok = yes in the profiles share but it was posted as a solution

   security = user
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   local master = yes
   domain master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   domain logons = yes
   wins support = yes
   dns proxy = yes
   encrypt passwords = yes
   logon path = \\noether\Profiles\%U\profile
   logon home = \\noether\%U
   logon drive = h:
   logon script = network.bat
#============================ Share Definitions
    path = /usr/local/samba.nt/samba/profiles
    browseable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    writable = yes
    case sensitive = no
    preserve case = yes

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
