I am facing the problem of my roaming profile being unavailable. I tried reading through every available material I could find on the internet in vain.
To diagonise, I used wireshark to see the network communication occuring.
One of the troublesome communication was opening the profile folder on the server. The /var/samba/profile folder contains directories named same as the users.
I made the profiles folder browsable and still am not able to open the folder in the server (network neighbourhood even when i log into the windows machine as root. When I log in as the localmachine administrator, and try to open the profile, I enter the root user and password and am still not allowed.
I am always told that a local profile is created.
the /var/samba/profile is owned by root and I have given read-write access to owner/group/others.
/var/samba/profile/user1 is owned by the respective users and have the same kind of access. I tried everything i could but nothing worked.
I tred to see the SELinux policies and tried to disable SELinux protection but that ended up in an error.
I also tried to copy the profile of "default user" into the profile directory of the users. That di not work too..
