FAQ

Cannot update roaming profile

Usually because a file is in use, check out

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ExcludeProfileDirs


Windows complaining about wrong rights on profile


No security tab in Explorer

Windows did not load your profile because a server copy of the profile folder already exists that does not have the correct security

profile acls = yes

Can't join domain

close all shares log in to windows, no anonymous 'login'

on access virus scanning


Windows cannot connect to the domain, etc..

Switch to workgroup, set system name first, reboot, join domain again, reboot.


win2k: Error joining domain: User name could not be found

means samba couldn't find MACHINE name, probably a failing add machine script? also check /var/log/samba/log.machinename for Get_Pwnam and "add machine"

create_builtin_users: Failed to create Users

we can only guess

Unable to sync browse lists in this workgroup

Unable to find the Domain Master Browser name for the workgroup
find_domain_master_name_query_fail

synching mess

turn off csc policy

CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -5
