Hi there,

i think i´ve solved the problem, but i don´t understand why there was a 

i change in the useraccount following settings:
deleted attribute sambaDomainname blabla
deleted attribute sambahomedrive /home/xyz
deletet attribute sambahomepath /home/xyz

and now it works,
could someone explain how these three attributes could effect such a
behavior ???

kind regards
