Question Samba PDC & Win2K Profiles


I am using Samba as a PDC for Win2K clients and it allows me to log in just fine but I am have a problem with the Windows profiles. I get the following two errors when I login on the Win2k machine.
Warning 1:
Windows cannot create a profile directory \\<pdc hostname>\profiles\<username>.pds. You will be logged on with a local profile. Changes to the profile will not be propagated tothe server. Contact your network administrator.

Warning 2:
Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.

Both of these errors go away when I click okay and the machine logs on to the Samba PDC just fine and I can carry out normal operations.
How can I correct this profile problem?

Samba as PDC

I'm having the same problem. I had verified permissions, owners, etc, but nothing had happened. The most frustrating thing is that everything was working good. Then it started to malfunction. I don't know tha cause. Anyone can help us?
