I've struggled with this for a few weeks and can't get anywhere. I'd like for someone to point me in the right
direction, if possible.
I have laid out below my complete samba setting in the hope that
1) Someone can find a solution to my current problem
2) It might help someone else, as I overcame a few problems with these settings myself, under samba 2.2.8a.. please note
some settings are for Samba 3 only I do have the samba 2.2.8a scripts archived for anyone that wants, that is fully
working with no bugs that I know of.
I been running samba server now for almost a year with very few problems, although to be fair i don't use most of the
features, I really just use it for authentication and managing the domain, all the user files are stored on 2 500GB NAS
devices POP4500 series, their a little slow and bit problematic but works mostly.
I felt the need to upgrade, as I could not get the NAS devices to join my domain running under Samba 2.2.8a. But that is
another problem and story for later.
Ive managed to get Samba 3.0.0-2 almost working, I removed all of the Samba 2.2.8a RPMs 3 of them client, server and
I should state that all was working very well until I installed the new Samba 3 RPM., Because of the errors I suspect
something to do with the RPC but I am really not sure..
-I can join the domain from any win9x, W2K and XP machine
-I can view and use the samba Directories as required.
-all seems to work well except to logon scripts.
I then installed the single RPMS, samba-3.0.0-2_rh8.i386.rpm and then setup my smbfs mount points so they would work
can do everything but run my logon scripts, when I view my set variables on a W2K machine I get:
to test the installation "smbclient -L //smb_server"

I belive according to the documenation this is a good indication that Samba is fully working and install correctly? I
Now to my problem...
USERPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\peter.CFU
The thing to note here is that the HOMEDRIVE is no longer H: it now has a bit of the
HOMEPATH stuck in it, and then the HOMEPATH has the remainder.
What is should look like is this:
When I check the smb.conf file all seems well, even when I do a testparm v I can find no
Can anyone help, this all worked well on Samba 2.2.8a, I assume I have not done somthing correctly, looking through the
news groups shine no light on the subject.
