Okay, have a small office running Samba on MDK 10.1 and XP workstations:


Using tbdsam as our backend. I recently added a new user, however this user 
does not run the regular login script for some reason

    net use h: \\FILESERVER\homes /YES
    net use p: \\FILESERVER\public /YES
    net use z: \\FILESERVER\archive /YES

The only drive being mapped is the home directory and it's being mapped as 
Z:, none of the other drives are being mapped.

I've checked the samba logs for both the server and workstation in question, 
also event logs on the workstation itself and don't see anything obvious 
relating to this problem. 

We are using roaming profiles for all users and logging in as several other 
users on this machine has the proper drive mappings from the login script.

I've checked user and group ownership on the various files and all seems as 

It's just this one user that is problematic. Googling hasn't turned up 
anything useful so far.
