This should be 'no'

This has to be 'yes' so that the user can update their profile.

One thing I am noticing, and someone may correct me on this,
but I don't think that NT will create a profile directory more
than one level deep. What I mean is that if you have the
logon path = \\%L\profile\%U
path = /export/smb/profile
Then NT will send a create request to make
/export/smb/profile/%U. But if the
logon path = \\%L\profile\%U\profile
and \\%L\profile\%U does not exist, then it will not
make the profile directory because it is 2 levels deep.
Try creating this directory using a root prexec script
or something and see if that doesn't help. Of course
if the directory does exist and your having problems,
then my comments are useless :)
Hope this helps,
