[Samba] Samba PDC not creating roaming profiles

Hi All,

I have recently moved my PDC from a linux suse 7.0 box to a
Solaris 8 server. I have downloaded the samba 2.2.8a and
installed it without any errors.
I used my old smb.conf and made the neccasry changes to it, I
have pasted it below.

I don't receive any errors, it just ends up using a local profile and
doesn't bother to update it to the server.

I have looked at countless documents going through the procedure
of setting up the profiles but not any regarding problems.

If anyone could help me or at least guide me in the right direction,
I would greatly appreciate it.
