Hi all,
	We have around 15 computers (win2k+sp4) and a Linux samba server(mandrake). 
Samba is configured for domain logons. I have included the "domain admin 
group" parameter in smb.conf and the group is called "admin". Till yesterday 
things were OK, everyone was able to login to the domain. Today, out of the 
blue, domain logins are not happening. Log files do not give a clue as to 
what's happening.

The windows clients throw out an error message saying "Unable to load your 
roaming profile.... logging in with your local profile". Does this mean that 
authentication is going OK and that only the roaming profile is not being 
loaded? I checked the perminssions on the profile folders and everything 
seems to be OK. Where do I need to look? I'll be glad if someone could point 
me in the right direction.

If any further information is needed to troubleshoot this issue please let me 
know. Also, I'll email the smb.conf in a day as I am at home right now. BTW I 
followed the procedure as described in the IBM samba document.
