samba PDC windows XP

I have a samba PDC up and operating. But I can't seem to get my window XP pro to log into the domain. I am getting this error.

"A device attached to the system is not functioning"


I can map a drive to the share from windows ie. \\sername\share but just can't join the domain.

ok. what you can do is:
- reboot
- just logon with an administrative user which is diffrent from your local and domain user names
- Go to tools and enable to display Hidden / System system files
- go to your "Documents and Settings" directory.
- Once you are there you'll se that you have profiles such as:
  - your user say user1 (I assume the local user is called user1)
  - your domain user say user1.domain (I assume the same user is a member of a domain called "domain" and has another profile called user1.domain - Please do appropriate substitotions to this)
 - rename your user1.domain profile to user1.dom.org
  - rename your user1 profile as user1.domain
- reboot
- logon
now you will see that you have the

Hi,

It basically means that your XP can not reach to your logon directory etc. which is needed to logon. The real reason why XP colud not reach them is listed in you log files. Please post the related lines in your samba log so we'll see what causes this.

I am having a problem keeping the computers local profile. Every time a computer logs onto the domain it changes their desktop. Is their a way to keep their existing desktop?

Kerem ERSOYPresidentCommented:
Hi,

What do you mean by keeping local profile ? do you mean hat they have a different desktop than they log on locally ? Otherwise do you mean that each time you log on to the desktop you see soem of the desktop items etc. are lost from previosu domain logon ??

wilsjAuthor Commented:
I mean I want the desktop to look as if I logged on locally to the machine. I want to keep everything the same but just be part of the domain.
Right now when I log into the domain I get the default icons from windows XP as if I just installed the OS.

Kerem ERSOYPresidentCommented:
Noe you should have the same settings / desktop etc. with your local user. If you have problems please just right click the new directory go to properties and add the domain user as the administrator /owner of the new profile directory.
