Win2K SP2 + Samba 2.2.2 + Roaming Profiles

Hello admins,

Does someone have working %SUBJ%?

All I can get for this configuration is:

1) Win2K client can join domain with Samba 2.2.2 as PDC
2) User from samba server can log in to the Win2K client
3) Profile is moved after logout to server properly
4) BUT when the user logs in again profile is NOT copied from server, but
Win2K creates NEW one!

Could someone explain me, what am i doing wrong? Relevant sections from
smb.conf: (profile is stored in users's home directory on Samba server)

   workgroup = TEST
   domain logons = yes
   security = user
   encrypt passwords = yes
   local master = yes
   os level = 65
   domain master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   wins support = yes
   preserve case = yes
   case sensitive = yes
   logon script = common.bat
   logon drive = S:
   logon home = \\%N\%U
   logon path = \\%N\%U\profile
   preserve case = yes
   case sensitive = yes

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   force directory mode = 0700
   nt acl support = no
   inherit permissions = yes
