Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is my first post, apologies for any potential logic gaps.
I've recently deployed a Samba 3.0.22 BDC with LDAP. Our current PDC is running Samba 3.0.23d Tdbsam. (My future goal is to move to a completely LDAP system, this is an intermediate step)
We don't use roaming profiles.
The problem is: When a user logs on through the BDC instead of the PDC, they get a new local profile instead of the original local profile they've been for a while now. If the user authenticates via the PDC, they are logged on with their original profile. How do I get it so that the user gets the same profile regardless of logging onto the BDC or PDC.
It appears that re-joining the client to the domain solves this issue, but I don't have the time to go through to the 300+ machines by myself.
I suspect the problem might be a flawed migration between the PDC and BDC. My migration simply takes all the information given by 'pdbedit -Lv' and for each entry adds a new user by smbldap-useradd on the BDC machine. I've also hacked the smbldap-useradd script to allow me to copy over the NT and LM password hashes so users can log on to the BDC without having to rejoin the domain. I was also careful to preserve logon scripts, profile paths, but SID's are different for users.
Any ideas what the problem might be? How does the client XP machine even know it's logged onto a different server?
I've attached the smb.conf and smbldap.conf for the BDC below
Thanks in advance!
