I always get the message and I'm using Samba 2.2.3a.

  I have the same problem too, but only the first time I log on. Then it creates everything just fine.
  I think it's something with Samba 2.2.4 and SP2.

    Finally I got SAMBA acting as an PDC. I can see the users of my domain, my logon script
    is working, ...

    But my profile directory can't get created eventhough I have given everyone ALL rights (CHMOD 777).
    I still get the message beneath when logging in:

    "Windows cannot create profile directory \\srvlin\home\profiles\mevi.pds. 
    You will be logged on with a local profile only. 
    Changes to the profile will not be propagated to the server. 
    Contact your network administrator. 

    DETAIL - Access is denied."

    I added the next lines in SMB.CONF:

    logon script       = logon%U.bat
    logon drive        = H:
    logon home         = \\%L\%U\.profiles
    logon path         = \\%L\home\profiles\%U

    comment           = Profiles (%h)
    writeable         = yes
    browseable        = no
    path              = /home/profiles
    create mask       = 0600
    directory mask    = 0700

    When I look to the directory properties from my WIN2K machine I see that I've got all
    the rights. Has anyone got an idea what's wrong?
