there is aparently a setting on the client to ignore the permissions

according to Marc Berenschot
I am not on the samba mailinglist and hope you don't mind me
We also run into the roaming profile problem. Microsoft advised us
do the following:
This extra check can be disabled by setting the following Policy
Open the Group Policy editor. Browse to: Computer Configuration =>
Administrative Templates => System => User Profiles The option "Do
for user ownership of Roaming Profile Folder" can be enabled or
(The default is disabled)
Note that if you want to add this policy to the Active Directory you
have to create the GPO from a Windows XP workstation.
It works on our site now, so we can both use win2k (SP3) and XP
with roaming profiles on a Solaris Samba server without winbind.
