Multisite Domain with Samba PDC

Still after some advice here guys... thanks

Hi all,

I am considering shelving our upgrade to W2k server from NT4 domain controllers after playing with samba 2.2.5 and getting it running as a DC at home. My aim is to use samba in place of our current structure.

My question is this. If we were to centralize our domain structure i.e. move from our current 4 domains to a single domain, is it possible to set user specific roaming profile directories.

For instance user A at site A downloads his profile from a file server at site A but user B who is at site B doesn't want to wait to download his profile from the same server at site A as the WAN link is not really up to the job. What I would like to do is allow user A to fetch his profile from the server at site A and user B to download their profile from the server at site B whilst logging into a central PDC at site A.

Is this possible or do I need to explore trust relationships in Samba and if so is that possible?
