I am using Samba 2.2.0 and I am experiencing problems with roaming user
profiles. The Samba server is acting as a PDC in a Windows NT domain.
With w2k clients, profile updates are no problem at all, but when using
NT4.0 it seems that the profile is not properly downloaded from the server. Also
it looks like the _whole_ User Part of the registry is not copied properly or
not immigrated properly into the running system. Therefore settings like
desktop background etc. (which are stored in this part of the registry) don't
get updated or dont get immigrated when I relog on the clients machine. Still
things like links and files which are stored as files in "Desktop" in every
users /home/profiles get updated properly.
The only workaround I have found is adding the domain-users to the local
administrators, this works and this time also registry is copied properly, and
any user settings gets restored.
Does anybody knows what the problem is? Is this a bug?
Any help is appreciated.


Here is my smb.conf:

        netbios name = DOM_PDC

        encrypt passwords = Yes
        min passwd length = 6
        keepalive = 30
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY
        character set = ISO8859-1
        logon script = scripts\%g.bat
        logon drive = H:
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 2
        preferred master = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        wins support = Yes
        unix realname = Yes
        domain admin group = @adm
        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -n -g  -c users -c Machine -d
