Hi everyone,

First off, I really don't know what to provide so please just ask what is
needed. Here's what I think is relevant starting with a brief description:

I have samba4 as AD DC for windows 10 clients. Roaming profiles are on a
share on the DC and are working perfectly. However, redirected folder, also
residing on the DC are not working as expected. I have yet to put my finger
on exactly how this is occurring but at some random time, usually a few
days, the user suddenly gets a warning that each recycle bin on /her/his
redirected folders is corrupt.

I manage the permissions on a Win7 station in the local LAN. When I login
to that station and check the permissions and ownership it appears fine to
me. However, if I check off the 'replace permissions and ownership...'
checkbox to re-apply (without changing anything) and have the user log
off/on everything returns to normal. A few days go by and the same issue

This is a pretty fresh setup. I install the AD DC on a brand new system,
created all the users from scratch and copied their docs over. (and set
permissions accordingly including a replace on subfolders for perms and
owner). Windows stations are also brand new and have the most recent MS

redirected folders are: documents, favorites, desktop, cookies and start
menu applied via GPO as per wiki. (permissions initially set as per wiki as

I know it's not advised to host shared files on the DC but was thinking
since they're not shares accessed by anyone else but the owner it would be
suitable to host them on the DC. I can host them on a separate samba
machine if that will resolve this (or make things simpler and at least help
in resolving this).

The only thing catching my eye in the logs is this:
 open_internal_pipe: Could not connect to lsarpc pipe:

  open_internal_pipe: Could not connect to dssetup pipe:

Like I said if there's something I can provide that's more relevant please
just ask.
