You should realize that Windows XP Home edition will not accept a samba server as a PDC, this is just not supported (read the EULA). XP Pro is fine, but you have to use a special setup (explained here).

The second error (cannot find local profile) is reasonable because the machine doesn't have one. Creating a local profile on the XP box will remove the second error. However, you want to use a roaming profile on the server.

http://www.math.temple.edu/computing/samba.html#roam

... this howto, in general, is a very good resource.

Try the following [Profiles] setting.
Code:
[Profiles]
  profile acls = yes
  create mode = 0600
  directory mode = 0700
  path = /home/samba/profiles
  browseable = no
  writeable = yes
  guest ok = yes
Do you want the admin group to be local or domain? See the howto above about creating and modifying domain groups. For a local admin, consider using sudo... that's what it is there for.



I want the admin group to be domain admin.
Can you provide any idea how to do it?

It dosen't matter what you do with the linux end - the config has to be done at the XP side. See the howto links provided in post #12. Hell... read the whole howto!

Make sure this isn't XP Home Edition... most useful network functions are disabled in this edition, including PDC access. You must use XP Pro.

There are even more problems with Windows Vista.

Note, laptops should be using their local profiles anyway.
The only thing in #12 that I did not implement is profile acls = yes I shall ttry that today.

I I do have WinXp Professional. And I guess there is some problem on the Linux end as well. I made the profiles folder browsable. However, I am not able to open it inspite of giving the root password. I gave all permission on the profiles folder on the Linux Machine.

Also, post #12 has something mentioned about @admin group. I can't I use @wheel instead.

The mini howto I pointed out tells you how to create a domain group, add users to it, and add privileges to it. If you want a domain admin... i.e. people who cat add Win2000/XP shares, then that is covered too.

There are lots of others too, including step-by-step instructions. Like:
http://www.chinalinuxpub.com/doc/www...m#_Toc32306486
... remember, google is your friend.

So that XP box finds its roaming profile now or not?
