Sorry - sent before completed.- my apologies for the dup.


I've got Samba set up with the homes share configured.


I've added the settings under the Terminal Services Profile tab of a test


When I log in, the folder specified is created, but it doesn't receive any
data files until the user logs off.


In the NT event viewer, I see :

Event Type:       Warning

Event Source:    Userenv

Event Category: None

Event ID:           1525

Windows has detected that Offline Caching is enabled on the Roaming Profile
share - to avoid potential profile corruption, Offline Caching must be
disabled on shares where roaming user profiles are stored.

Reading that gets me here:



The error is apparently that as Samba doesn't support telling 2003 NOT to
cache network data offline, 2003 DOES THIS by default, which means I'm not
really network storing my files. I've got a cached-roaming profile


Is there a way to fix this?


I don't want to ignore the warning as it's not giving me the desired results
