Description Pavel V.Zheltobryukhov 2003-07-15 04:35:45 UTC
I have a Samba2.2.8a on Linux RedHat7.3 as PDC with some Windows9x, Windows2000Pro and WindowsXP 
clients with roaming profiles and OS-dependent logon scripts. So, I wrote in

  logon path = \\%N\%U\profiles\%a
  logon home = \\%L\%U\profiles\%a

  path = /home/netlogon/%a

  Logon scripts is working properly, but I found that XP clients save
  profiles in \\SERVER\USERNAME\profiles\Win2K not in
  \\SERVER\USERNAME\profiles\WinXP. For Win2K and Win9x clients all works well.

  After such "merging" profiles,
  Win2K user profile is garbaged. You declared that Samba 2.2.8a is
  able to distinguish WinXP and Win2K on the client side (and it
  works for logon script, as I wrote above). How I can solve problem with profiles?
