The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 224
WindowsXP clients troubles with %a parameter in smb.conf
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:27:53 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?
already fixed in SAMBA_2_2 cvs tree
