This can be caused by a lot of things :-(
First to reassure you, Vista roaming profiles are working with a samba PDC.
Works for us on solaris samba 3.2.x and at least 3.0.30,
perhaps earlier versions to, don't remember and don't use notes :-).
We use the following registry key:
(perhaps unnecessary, profile acls should take care of that)
and the following smb.conf:
domain logons = yes
logon drive = h:
logon home = \\PDC\%U
logon path = \\PDC\Profiles\%U\%a
logon script = LOGON.BAT
comment = Roaming Profile Share
path = /zpool1/Profiles
profile acls = Yes
map read only = Permissions
read only = no
browseable = no
csc policy = disable
hide files = /?esktop.ini/$RECYCLE.BIN
That's for the server side!
On the client side bad drivers are causing problems!
We have to disable the "Nvidia Display Driver Service" as it impedes uploading of the profile.
Why a certified driver does this?
