SLES 9 PDC Setup

Posted on 2005-05-17

Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I am using SLES 9 and am trying to set it up as a PDC.  I have the authentication working, my problem is that I don't have roaming profiles working as I would like it to.  I tested the roaming profiles by logging in under 2 different machines, and the test file that I placed on the desktop of my Windows XP workstations was part of the roaming profile, but the user preferences were not.  I would like to know how to configure the profiles so that the user preferences of the machine are also roaming (ex. Wallpaper, screensaver, etc.).  I also have SuSE Pro 9.2 workstations on my network, so everything that is part of the roaming profile would also have to be compatible with both Windows and SuSE workstations.  This may not be possible, but I would like to find out.  I am fairly new to linux, so please provide detailed step by step instructions.

Can't really share between linux and windows.
Linux saves backgrounds and textfiles and windows saves it in the registry.

The wallpaper won't save if its not a bmp.

make sure that there is a NTUSER.Dat file in the profile directory

here's my (modified) smb.conf
