Hi all,

Runing Samba 3.0.14a-3sarge1 PDC, using an LDAP backend

Problem is I cant seem to load Roaming Profiles, as it gives the
following error

"Windows did not load your roaming profile and is attempting to log you
on with your local profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to
the server when you logoff. Windows did not load your profile because a
server copy of the profile folder already exists that does not have the
correct security. Either the current user or the Administrator's group
must be the owner of the folder. Contact your network administrator. "

Here is my profiles share conf

-----------> Snip

        path = /home/profiles
        read only = no
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
        browseable = No
        guest ok = no
        profile acls = yes
        csc policy = disable
        # next line is a great way to secure the profiles
        force user = %U
        # next line allows administrator to access all profiles
        valid users = %U "Domain Admins"

-------------> Snip

Google suggested to "Do not check for user ownership of Roaming Profile
Folders at Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / System /
User Profiles" but this is a client thing and at 200 workstations its
tiring just to think about it....

Any solutions,
