[Samba] Strange profile behavior ...

Assuming XP, you control roaming profiles on the XP machine, not the Samba

On XP:
Start, Run, type "gpedit.msc", hit enter.
Expand "Computer Configuration"
Expand "Administrative Templates"
Expand "System"
Highlight "User Profiles"
Change "Prevent Roaming Profiles from propagating to the server" to Enabled.
Change "Allow only local profiles" to Enabled.
Logout and back in (or reboot.)


Hope this helps....

I've setup  a PDC  on Ubuntu Feisty with Samba 3 ...
My users can join and use the domain but each time that open session the
environment is reset to default parameters ...  !

Note I don't want to use Roaming just local profiles !
In my smb.conf  I've got these lines :


logon path =
logon drive = H:
logon home = \\%N\%U
logon script = logon.cmd

   comment = Users profiles
   path = /home/samba/profiles
   guest ok = no
   browseable = no
   create mask = 0600
   directory mask = 0700

Any ideas ?
