Subject: [Samba] Profile trouble
I'm relatively new to Samba and struggling with the folowing:
The system is a W2003 domain with W2K clients and Samba 3.0.14a-3sa on
Debian (Debian package)
I've made two shares:
comment = Home directory
read only = No
valid users = %S
create mask = 0755
directory mask = 0775
browseable = No
path = /mnt/sdb1/data/profiles/
browseable = No
writeable = yes
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
/mnt/sdb1/data/profiles/ is set with all permissions for user 'user' and
domusers is mapped
#net groupmap list|grep "Domain Users"
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-2334634195-46418153-2501264360-513) -> -1
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-1657160631-611637488-1835888628-3005) -> domusers
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-1657160631-611637488-1835888628-513) -> -1
In the domain the the account is set to map the homedir to \\linux\user
As my W2K client logs on it complains about not being able to retrieve
the roaming profile stored on the server. It does get it's homeshare though.
While logging on it does create a directory 'user' in profiles but it
does not fill it.
After logging on the \\linux\profiles\user share is mappable and writeable.
I'm quite sure I'm missing some basic configuration but I can't figure
Many thanks in advance.
