hi ! thanks now I have my samba up and running fine.
I have it configured as a PDC, and all the roaming profiles work,
the management, etc. it's all fine. now, the client that I'm working for,
told me ( after some days of making it all work ) that he sees that the use
of roaming profiles in his network is useless.
ok now, he says no roaming profiles ! I have searched around the network and
i found that if I edit the windows policies, i can avoid the computer from
trying to create roaming profiles using this:
Local Computer Policy/Computer Configuration/Administrative
Templates/System/User Profiles/Only Allow Local User Profiles. Local
Computer Policy/Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/User
Enable both the "Prevent Roaming Profile changes from propagating to the
server" setting and the "Only allow local user profiles" setting."
and that works, but I was wondering is there a way to stop the roaming
profiles from the server, instead from each client ? i have tried some ways,
and I always get the "I can't save or find the profile on the server, it
will be saved next time it's available" every time I log on.
now... if i tweak [profiles] or [netlogon] is there a way to totally stop
the roaming profiles from the server ? just have the PDC to authenticate the
users, and to serve files to those users ?
thank you very much.
