Sorry, that I am not ideal bug reporter, bug try to make things clear.
All clients have same W2K SP4, with the same network settings. We have about 50
clients using Samba server as PDC and files sharing via home shares.
I have upgraded from 3.0.8 to 3.0.14a on my Debian Linux server (Sarge).
Immediately after that only some of my users registered tree types of errors:
1) Even I have "login drive = J:", their drive J disapear.
Via browsing networks is possible to connect this share manually a map them to
wanted drive letter.
2) Unability to save Excel files to some directories. Excel display error and
saved file under random name to the same shared directory. This file is
possible to open but not save as.
3) Losing connection to shared home directory time by time.
There is interesting, that those errors appears only on some clients, others
works fine. Even there probably must be some difference between them, I have
not discovered any yet.
I have find an 3.0.7 debian package and after downgrade to this version all
I'll try to add my samba.conf, smb.log and one-station detail log to this
I started the 3.0.14a daemon at 2005/05/23 12:24:34 and the 3.0.7 at 2005/05/25
If you will miss some informations, please feel free to ask.

This is actually how it is supposed to work. The %u
requires an active connection to a share, but the domain
logon happens outside any any given share. So the %u is
not expanded when sent back the client in the NET_USER_INFO_3
structure (part of the samlogon reply).
Thank you for explanation, however this is not exactly I was hoped for.
I am using one Debian machine as file server and Samba PDC. I have more Debian
servers in the net, so I can use another one as PDC but only this one as file
I need to have one mapped network share on each workstation pointing to logged
user home directory. This home directory we keep read-only and have there many
symlinks pointing to user-accesible places. Mapping of this share can be done
automatically (as user logs in) or manually (as W2K auto-reconnected share map).
For many reasons I preffer using the latest Samba version, but currently (due
this "supposed behavior") we must keep 3.0.7
Please, can you suggest me any workaround for my case?
Thanks a lot.

i found this bug report when looking for solutions to a problem with my logon path. (Found that indeed.)
Your problem looks like a configuration error. The group of user "katkav" could not be found. What's written in the line of user "katkav" in /etc/passwd? There's some error there or in /etc/group.
