    Hello all,

While reading the mailling-list archives I have seen many people having
problem to set up roaming profiles, I have exactly the opposite problem.

I don't have roaming profiles set on my server and I don't want them.
But I tried to add a Win2000 advanced server in the domain (just as
member, no BDC or wathever) and when I log on the windos box, it
complain about not being able to get the profile from the server.

So how can I desactivate roaming profiles ? is it something on the samba
server side or on the windows server side ?

I don't have the "logon path" parametter, and no share named "Profiles"

I tried using poledit to set the default o local profile rather than 
roaming profiles (tried to save them as NTconfig.pol or ntconfig.pol in 
the netlogon share) but it still don't work

   If anyone have an idea ?
