Re: [K12OSN] Active Directory - SMB/LDAP Switch



I found that everything works better when I tell samba on the PDC to act as a
wins server, and then in my DHCP set my samba PDC as the primary WINS server
for all clients. Not sure if this is your problem or not, just throwing it out
there.

Perhaps the most important lesson we learned was that the profile
directory and
home directory MUST be different! What we decided to do was use
roaming
profiles, but exclude the Desktop and My Documents directories
from roaming to
cut down on logon/logoff time (by merging a .reg file via logon
script). We
instead chose to use folder redirection (by merging a .reg file
via logon
script) for those two folders. We thought (wrongly) that since
these folders
would be exluded from roaming the redirected folders could live
amongst the the
other profile directories. What this resulted in was files that
would randomly
disappear from the Desktop and My Documents folders. Ultimately
we stuck with
using folder redirection, but we redirected them to the home
directory and put
the profiles in /home/profiles/username. This made me happier
than putting the
profiles in the default location because we have a large
partition for /home.



Does anyone have a howto on redirect or a url?
Thanks

Which bit you do want to know to do.

I can send you our reg files that I use to redirect My Doc's to
there home drives

Just looked through what my login script etc actually do and it's not
a reg entry that alter the My Doc's it's actually my KIX login script
that alters the location.

I can let you all have this if you like but looking at it the reg hive
below is what it alters. If you look at the section "Personal" it is
pointed to p:\\ which is the drive I map for the users home dir. If
you look through you could alter loads of stuff like where Favourites
etc are saved, which I might start doing.
