Subject: Roaming and local profiles EXTRANGE problem!!


I'm from Spain, and my name is Daniel. I am desesperated by a problem with samba, and i don't find any solution in google, forums, and so.

I know that you are really tired about stupid questions from beginners or not beginners, but I really need somebody to help me!!!

The problem is:

My clients (winXP and 2000) logged ok on my samba domain. They load their roaming profile, all ok. But....

... something strange happens!!! They load BOTH roaming and LOCAL profiles!! This makes that "old copies" from their profiles (for example, if they didn't access many time ago to a determinate client) are load, like old documents erased from other client.

I found a solution, delete the local profile from clients by a group directive... but my bosses don't like this solution... I'm really desesperated... :(

Please help me... thanks....

My clients are win XP with SP2 and Win2000 with SP4.I's using samba 3.

I post my smb.conf:

        workgroup = MICASA
        server string = Controlador de Dominio
        passdb backend = tdbsam, guest
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 1000
        time server = Yes
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 34
        preferred master = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        wins support = Yes
        comment = Home Directories
        read only = No
        create mask = 0700
        directory mask = 0700
        browseable = No

        comment = Network Logon Service
        path = /home/samba/netlogon
        write list = root
        browseable = No

        comment = User profiles share
        path = /var/lib/samba/profiles
        read only = No
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
        browseable = No
        profile acls = yes
