Samba PDC Problems (Possibly Simple?)

Ok I'm running a domain on Samba smbd 2.2.0-alpha3 (installed From *.rpm)

Firstly. Is this the version of choice (as I would like the Domain facilities)

Ok so when a client logs on to the domian, all authentication works ok and all is well.

When it come to log off there is a permission denied error on a sub-directory in the Profiles dire on the linux box,

there is a line in smb.conf...
directory mask = 0700
Which should create all directories drwx------
But it doesn't. It creates some drwx------ and some drw-------
No eXecute tag, (correctme if i'm wrong but if a dir has no X tag then you cannot enter?????
That is what is happening to these Dirs even accessing on the Linux interface!!!

HELP!!!

Thx in advance

Ali

First of all, I would not recommend using an alpha version of Samba.  You can get the latest version from www.samba.org and find the local mirror to you.

Latest version is 2.2.1

I would uninstall your current version using rpm -e samba (common, client), and then install the current version.

Try that first

are those directories on NFS-mounted file systems?
Then you need to check you mount options.
