SAMBA 2 as PDC want to auto-map "My Documents" to user's home

Hi.

I have a Samba 2 server. This is the PDC of a domain, windows xp service pack 2, and no service pack workstations do
log fine to the domain, and I get the drive "H:' automatically mapped to the user's home directory, and profiles stored
else where. (BTW, for some reazon, some users profiles are not "uploaded" to the server when user logs off, but I think
tis question goes elsewhere)

The problem is, users do not even know/want to select a drive to store their documents. They want to just to push a cuple of
buttons to get their files saved, and as u know, the first directory that appears when you press "Save" or "Save as.." in most
applications is the "MY Documents" folder so, I would like to know if is there a way to autmatically map the "My Documents" directory
to the already mapped home drive "H:" in this case.

I know, I can regedit the location for the my documents folder, but, I would like to be fully automatic.

Any suggestions?

Greetings

see this:

http://us5.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/happy.html#id2549223

or google for "samba folder redirection"

I don't know for sure if this works for samba 2.x, it is outdated and you should think
about upgrading anyway.

lqw, no samba 2 AFAIK doesn't support LDAP.

But I already found the answer on some other site... It's as easy as "copy" a previously created prfile with the desired settings set (ntuser.dat) to the other profiles.

Thanks anyway.

tweak UI for windows.  The only drawback is you must install on each PC, and change the setting under my computer special folders
