I don't know much about Win2K, but I believe you need a logon script like
netlogon.bat (a batch file). This file should be in your netlogon share.
I wouldn't make your logon path /home/samba/netlogon, but give every user
it's own logon path (this is where the roaming profiles are stored).
Example: logon path = \\PROFILESERVER\PROFILE\%U

Onderwerp: Win2K doesn't exec logon script
When I boot a Win2K client it should execute the Samba (v2.2.1a, on Linux
2.4.12) netlogon script, but it doesn't. What am I doing wrong?
The global section of my smb.conf is shown below. This config, including
the netlogon script, has been working great with Win9x and OS/2. Please be
gentle as I am a total Win2K newbie.
A few notes:
0. Names used:
a. My client user name = steve
b. My client machine name = pluto
c. My workgroup = snydernet
d. Name of machine running Samba server = sunburn
1. I am able to browse the shares and to manually map any share to the
appropriate service (drive or printer). Once mapped the share works fine.
2. I accasionally see this messages in the Samba log for my Win2K client:
[2001/10/12 10:17:44, 0] smbd/nttrans.c:call_nt_transact_ioctl(1798)
call_nt_transact_ioctl: Currently not implemented.
3. I'm suspicious of a few Win2K environment variables, especially
"LOGONSERVER=\\PLUTO". Shouldn't the name be the name of my Samba server
4. The IPC$ seems to be active (as shown in smbstatus output) a long time.
Is it timing out?
5. Win2K does not display any warning or error messages with which I could
diagnose this problem. It seems to simply not run the script.
