User Profiles problem.

Hi Everybody,

I just compiled and installed the latest CVS on a Sol2.6 sparc with
no problem.

Users can login from their NT workstation and almost everything looks
good except the Profiles.

my smb.conf has the following entries:

logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%U

   comment = Network Logon Service
   path = /local/samba/lib/netlogon
   guest ok = no
   writable = no
   share modes = no

        path = /local/samba/profiles
        root preexec = /local/samba/bin/buildprofile %U
        browseable = no
        guest ok = no

In order for buildprofile to create a user directory permission
for directory /local/samba/profiles should be 777.

But even after the user directory is created, when I logoff the
nt workstation I get:

   "The update for roaming profile failed."

In the logfiles  (log.ntmachine) I get the following errors:

*** During logout
[1998/09/16 10:14:38, 1] smbd/ipc.c:api_fd_reply(3419)
  api_fd_reply: INVALID PIPE HANDLE: 7017


*** During login
[1998/09/16 10:13:37, 1] passdb/passdb.c:pdb_name_to_rid(614)
  Username  is invalid on this system

I have turned off the User Profile Caching on all the NT workstaions.

I need to know what I am doing wrong here.

thanks in advance
