[Samba] profile problem

If you are running win2000 it is messy.  I have just been through this at a site and basically, the problem is with win2k security on the user folders under "Documents and Settings".  Unless someone with a good understanding of win2k has a better suggestion, I have given the users Administrator rights on the Domain settings and local settings on the workstation.
I have also gone into the Advanced security settings which talks about 'child and parent' relationships and enabled full flow throught to all child folders and files of these administrator rights.
I have given all Administrator type users full control over the folders.

When you give these rights to Administrator type users they only have these rights over the local machine, even though they may be a domain user.  They  can't get into the server as an administrator, from what I have checked.

I guess it isn't good to give the end user full Admin rights over a local machine either, especially if they like to play with settings.  I am sure there must be a better way and I am looking at the problem further.  If you come up with anything, please let me know.

If you would like further clarification, email me and I'll get back to you next Monday when I am at the site.

Subject: [Samba] Profile problem  [:-(] 


I'm using samba 2.2.5 as a profile server. The PDC is told that the =
profile location is \\mcprofile\profiles

The profile server (mcprofile) has a share set up called profiles.

I'm not sure if its a windows or a samba problem, but on some machines =
you logout and it tells you it can not save the settings, on other =
machines it will save the settings. Has anyone come across this problem =
