I don't know if it is relative to your problem but I  also use Samba 2.2.5
as a PDC for Nt4 clients and servers except I configured os level as 64 and
not 65.

You will find two articles on http://networking.earthweb.com/netos with a
very good explanation on how to configure Samba as a PDC.

Subject: [Samba] Roaming profile problems


I have installed since 6 months a PDC with samba and there is an endless
problem : the roaming profile synchronisation !!!

THE problem : Sometimes after the logout of a client, the roaming profile
is not synchronised on server. So when client connect on another clients, it
seems that some data have been loosed... After there is no later
synchronisation... So mails in profile are often lost!

( This is not a problem with time : The time is synchro with the netlogon
script so clients and server have same time.... )

My configuration :
server :
- linux 2.4.18 with XFS filesystems
- Server samba 2.2.5

client :
Windows 2000 workstation
Service Pack 3

My smb.conf : (some options are in this file for tests as "oplocks")
workgroup = TERA
netbios name = TERASERV
server string = Tera PDC
encrypt passwords = Yes
domain admin group = root linagora @admin @S_tera @S_omsyc @S_rom
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -n -g machines -c Machine -d
/dev/null -s
/bin/false %m$
logon path = \\%N\profiles\%U
logon script = scripts\logon.bat
domain logons = Yes
domain master = Yes
preferred master = Yes
local master = yes
os level = 65
nt acl support = Yes
veto files = /Icon/.AppleDouble/.AppleDesktop/Network Trash
log level = 5
security =user
log file = /var/log/%m.samba.log
time server = yes

        path = /opt/samba/netlogon
        browseable = No
        read only = No

csc policy = disable
path = /server/profiles
browseable = no
read only = no
create mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
nt acl support = No
# preexec=/opt/samba/bin/preexec.sh %U

        read only = No
        create mask = 0640
        directory mask = 0750
        browseable = Yes
