When I log in from a Windows XP machine with the user 'test' I get an error message saying that the machine can't find a server copy of my roaming profile and is logging on using the default local profile. In details it says that the network name cannot be found. But after logging in and after creating a file (for example on the desktop) and after logging out the file can still be found on the server in /home/test/Desktop/. If I log in again I get the same error message. But the file is still there. So it's loading from the server. What's wrong?

I had the same problem after upgrading to samba 3.0.24 and I believe
you need profile acls = yes in the [Profiles] section. At least that
is what fixed the problem for me.
