Got a problem with Samba PDC and User Profiles.
I hope someone can shed some light on this for
Samba 2.0.7 running as a PDC for DFABJ750 domain.
A J750 NT-based Integrated Circuit tester as a client
in the DFABJ750 domain.
A couple of lab NT boxes as test clients in the DFABJ750
Samba was initially on a lab Sun box named msptest. We had
added a few users and got the basic domain logins working
and the smb.conf file set up on msptest. The J750 users
stuff was running fine. Since msptest was a lab box we
needed to move it to a semi-permanent server box. All Samba
functions were moved from msptest to another Sun box named
After moving Samba/PDC functions to willie none of the
clients could get login information from willie. I eventually
discovered that I had to remove all the clients from the
DFABJ750 domain and re-add them to DFABJ750 before they could
"see" willie as their new PDC.
After this, existing "old" user profiles no longer worked, whether
they were local or roaming. "Old" users can no longer run their
J750 test programs, while "new" users, added since willie was
enabled, can run the exact same programs just fine, AND their
user profiles work just fine. I suspect the two problems are
facets of the same problem, user profiles.
Any ideas or suggestions?
