Good day.

I am relatively new with samba, I can get a single server
configuration of samba to work. However now I am trying to get single
sign ons with roaming profiles to work. I can join the domain without
problems. However when I restart and then type THUNDER\dan and my
password into the login screen (as the domain entry box does not show
up) I get the error "The system cannot log you on now because the
domain THUNDER is not avaliable.".

This error still happens even though I can browse the file server
portion of the server.

My goals with this server are to have my login accounts set on the one
server and logged on to by Windows XP Pro, and Mac OS X eventually.

The following is my smb.conf file, it is mostly a copy of one I found
in a HOW-TO on the internet, most options I do not understand.

workgroup = THUNDER
netbios name = %h
server string = %h

passdb backend = tdbsam
security = user
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
name resolve order = wins bcast hosts
domain logons = yes
preferred master = yes
wins support = yes

# Set CUPS for printing
printcap name = CUPS
printing = CUPS

# Default logon
logon drive = H:
logon script = scripts/logon.bat
logon path = \\THUNDER\profile\%U

# Useradd scripts
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -m %u
delete user script = /usr/sbin/userdel -r %u
add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd %g
delete group script = /usr/sbin/groupdel %g
add user to group script = /usr/sbin/usermod -G %g %u
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -s /bin/false/ -d /var/lib/nobody %u
idmap uid = 15000-20000
idmap gid = 15000-20000

# sync smb passwords woth linux passwords
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
passwd chat debug = yes
unix password sync = yes

# set the loglevel
log level = 3

valid users = %U
create mode = 0600
directory mode = 0700

browsable = no

comment = User profiles
path = /home/samba/profiles
valid users = %U
create mode = 0600
directory mode = 0700

If you require any other information I will be more then happy to
provide it, simply say the word.

Thank you for your time, it is much appreciated.
