I am trying to get roaming profiles working for my Win2K workstation and
run a group login script at logon. My user account (traxx) can join and
logon to the domain (DATA) but I get 2 error messages after
1 'Windows cannot create profile directory \\henry\dcarter\profile.pds.
You will be loggeed on with a local profile only. Changes to the profile
will not be propogated to the server. Contact your network administrator.'

2-'Windows cannot find the local profile & is logging you on with a
temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you
log off.'

These are the relevant lines from my smb.conf:

netbios name=DATASERVER
logon script=%g.bat
domain logons=yes
create mask=0777
read only=no

I can access \\henry\profiles from the run command okay I have also tried:


to store profiles in home directories e.g. mine would be /home/users/traxx
but I get the same error messages.

By the way my samba logs also says:

[2003/07/27 14:56:31, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog.c:api_net_sam_logon(206)
  api_net_sam_logon: Failed to marshall NET_R_SAM_LOGON.
[2003/07/27 14:56:31, 0] rpc_server/srv_pipe.c:api_rpcTNP(1200)
  api_rpcTNP: api_netlog_rpc: NET_SAMLOGON failed.
[2003/07/27 14:56:35, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(248)
  traxx ( couldn't find service profiles

Can anybody help?

Thank you
