I set up Samba (2.2.3a) as a PDC Server and a Profiles Server for my 80 clients
running Windows W2k Sp1 and W2k Sp2.

If the profile for example is created with a Sp2 client and changes are made,
after disconnecting and reconnecting with another Sp2 client the changes are
correctly displayed.

But if I modify with a Sp1 client a profile created with a Sp2 client, the
profile will be damaged (i.e. further changes made with a Sp2 client will be
ignored such as mail accounts or desktop wallpaper) and only changes made by sp1
 client will be correcty applyed both for sp1 and sp2 clients!

I use also smbuser file to map different users between Windows and Linux.

Here is my smb.conf file (I think it is ok):

   add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 100 -s /bin/false -M %u
   workgroup = BCCFILOTTRANO
