make sure that your users know that folders like there "Desktop" get
transferred every time they log on and off.  So if they have large files or
folders on there desktop it will severely slow things down.

Subject: [Samba] slowness when using roaming profiles

I am on a rh 7.2 machinr running samba. My clients are windows 2000 and
whn using locl profiles I experience quick log-ons and quicj log-offs.

Whwn I flag the client for roaming profiles, it seems to take many minutes
 to log off.

The users roaming directory IS created and is populated with
their user inoformation, one user has 300M of stuff.Which I thought
was alot.

When the user goes to log-off it takes many minutes to synch with
the server, is there a way to speed this up?
