Samba PDC: Windows NT client always displays "Welcome to windows NT"
I have a samba server that is the PDC for a mix of Windows NT and 2000 clients. I'm just starting to setup the windows NT clients and have an annoying "Welcome to Windows NT" dialog that shows up every time I log in.
There are apparently two different "Welcome to Windows NT" dialogs that show up. One has a check box to never display it again. The other (which is the one I keep getting) does not have this check box.
The samba server is setup to host roaming profiles.
I'm sorry I can't post the smb.conf file right now as it's at my work - and I'm not.
Has anyone run into this problem and found out how to fix it?
Oh - the Windows 2000 machines have no problem (yet...).
Here is my smb.conf
It is driving me nuts. I think this has to do with some file permissions or something. It also seems that the windows nt registry is having some difficulties. I can't open certain keys to change some settings.
Would it have anything to do with the fact that I have both Windows 2000 and NT machines? Do they conflict with each other?
I am clueless...
Well... whatever I did in between getting it working with 2000 and messing with it on NT caused 2000 to have the same issue... Profiles are broken... I will sort this out.
I am curious now (after many hours of tweaking/reconfiguring) if anyone has successfully AND consistently gotten samba to function as a PDC for a mix of windows clients...
I'm so over it.
