I'm using samba version 2.2.9. On the clientside I'm using Windows XP.
Samba is running as pdc and while I'm in the office, all works fine. During
my session, I can create documents in my personal folder (for example on my
desktop) and when I log out, all files are synced to my serverside profile.
When I work offline (so that I'm not connected to the pbc) and I create
files (*.docs, *.xls, ... ), then these file will be stored in my personal
folders too. The next time I connect to the pdc my local profile will be
synced to the serverside profil. The files on my client are still in the
same direction. Now I log out and the files, generated in "offline mode" are
not synced to my serverside profil.

I already checked the samba.log generated for this client, but it's looking

What do I do wrong? Why are these files not synced by samba as the pdc? Are
there any hints?
