Hi all,

Can you use Samba to store an XP Pro profile?

I'm running Samba 3.0.2a (compiled from source) on Solaris 9.

Compiled it against OpenLDAP 2.1.30 and MIT Kerberos 1.3.3  (both
compiled from source from fresh downloads today).

Am now trying to get Windows XP Pro to store profiles on to this box.
The smbd and nmbd seem to run fine.

Every time XP Pro goes to create a user's profile it connects
(correctly) to:-


but then we get:-

[2004/04/26 14:54:11, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(705)
  dltest2 ( connect to service profiles initially as user jsmith (uid=1935, gid=100) (pid 16145)
[2004/04/26 14:54:11, 0] smbd/posix_acls.c:create_canon_ace_lists(1380)
  create_canon_ace_lists: unable to map SID S-1-5-21-973294077-3660535-3933214913-4632 to uid or gid.

and an ugly "the security's wrong on the profile" sort of message on the XP Pro 

So, simple question.

Can you use Samba to store an XP Pro profile?
