Does anyone have a smb.conf from a system that is currently working with
roaming profiles, preferably the newest version but I'll take one from
2.x if that is all there is.  I have been reading through the following
link on roaming profiles with smb 3.x
The resulting smb.conf seems to be missing things that look like they
are needed.  One thing that really catches my attention is it says that
2000/XP machines need to have encrypted password turned on to work.
Also that security = user should be set.  Anyhow I would like to see one
that is working and compare to what is on our new setup.

PS: I usually drink screwdrivers :-)  But am far from fixing this.
