Hello Benjamin,

As far as I know there shouldn't be any problems here; if you have deleted 
the user account & modified some groups it is possible that the permissions 
on the profile has been changed.

On the individual user profiles;
chmod -R 777 profilename
chown -R username.Domain\ Users profilename

then delete the profile from the local machine; preferred to copy or move it 
to a backup directory, and then logon to the domain with the modified 

Hope this helps.

ps - if you are going to email me directly, please email it to the lists as

after I had changed the backend from OpenLDAP to smbpasswd (please don't ask 
why), all profiles are damaged.

I have server stored profiles and Samba 3.0.9.

When I give this user local admin privileges, they can work normal, but when 
I remove this privileges all windows settings are removed and they can't 
change it.

I had removed the profile on the local computer, but this doesn't work, too. 
After the user had login, they have the same problem.

Do I really need to create the profile new (delete ntuser.*, copy all data 
in new created profile)?

With best regards

Benjamin Nagel
