Hello all,

I'm not new to samba, but for some reason I'm always being bitten by
it when I try to set up roaming profiles.

So I would like to ask for some help here.

I've been RTFM the manual a lot on the samba website, Paying a lot of
attention to the following pages.

And still I get the temporary profile error.

I've got the following questions :

What filesystem can I use (currently I use ext4)
What mount options are needed (currently I use : acl,user_xattr)
What rights should the profiles folder have in linux ?
Who should be the owner and group in linux ?

This is my smb.conf

# Global parameters
        workgroup = TJAKO
        realm = TJAKO.THUIS
        netbios name = SAMBA2
        server role = active directory domain controller
        dns forwarder =
        idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
        log level = 3

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/tjako.thuis/scripts
        read only = No

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol
        read only = No

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/Profiles
        read only = no

Anybody who can help me out ?
