Description Walter Laub 2006-09-08 10:03:34 UTC
The %a variable is not well substituted for XP64.

For separation of profiles of different OS we use the %a variable:
        logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%U\%a

With samba3021b the variable points to Win2K for XP64! This result in 
trouble with the user profiles!

Samba for lastest builds of Vista
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2007-02-08 15:33:02 UTC
The Vista expansion should be fixed now.  Look at WinXP64.
