my question no really concerns 100% to Samba but since I use Samba ...
I use Samba 3.0.13 as an PDC and have about 40 WinXp Pro Clients.
I was wondering what happens if the WinXP Pro Clients won´t have any 
connection to the Samba Server anymore. Maybye due an error in the 
network or the PDC died for some reason.
Is there any way to quickly change the clients profile to a local 
profile? I don´t have profile roaming enabled. All I want is that the 
users can access/login to their profiles if the Samba PDC wouldnt be 
available anymore ....
Thanks a lot
