Crazy Problem with Samba home directory mapping.

Dear all,

I have setup samba on Ubuntu 8.04-hardy and i have configured samba as pdc and users home directory would be exported as a network drive when they login to the domain. Every user is able to get a mapped network drive except one user account. Its strange, coz this user is able to his home directory from the network places in winxp but not as a mapped drive. I have also checked logging in from different machines, but the mapped network drive doesn't come up.

Has anyone faced this problem

Solved this problem. I remembered using the pdbedit command to change the profile for this user. So, i had to change the profile path to the correct one using pdbedit -p option. Sorry for the trouble.
