After upgrading from Samba 2.2.3a to 2.999+3.0cvs20 I'm experiencing the
following problem:

When a user logs on they get a message from windows that says the
"Your Roaming profile is not available"

Then it says

"Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a
temporary profile"

When the user logs in again none of the settings remain.

I have the following to lines in my smb.conf

        logon path = ""
        logon home = ""

Smile =)

You are trusting our documentation...?

See smbgroupedit.  It handles this stuff for now.
