Hello everyone. Well, I have a very interesting thing happening with my
Samba PDC when I try and disable roaming profiles. As it is now, im running
Samba as a PDC with LDAP on the backend.
This is what i've done to disable roaming profiles:

Now, i've used the idealx scripts to add users, groups as well as modify
and delete users and groups. Everything was working well except i've run
into a snag when i've tried to disable roaming profiles.

comment out a few lines. These are the lines:
$_userHomePrefix = q(/home/);
$_userSmbHome = q(\\\\PDC-SRV\\homes);
$_userProfile = q(\\\\PDC-SRV\\home\\samba\\profiles\\);

I've checked everything I can think of, but still cant seem to figure it out.
Anyone have any suggestions? I've running RH 7.3, with samba 2.2.8a as well
as OpenLDAP 2.0.27.
I appreciate everyones input.
