    Samba PDC for Windows XP Pro Clients

    Ive setup samba as a primary domain controller and have added the windows client machine. All is working fine but!

    When I login to the windows machine the My Documents is located in the profile, I need it to be on a mapped network drive.

    Im using this:
    logon drive = q:
    logon home = \\NSC\%u

    I gather that the "logon home" means that it sets that as the my documents?

    but its not working so ive added a logon script,

    net use U: \\NSC\%username% /home

    but that doesnt work either :S

    Please can someone give me a hand to get this working

    Not sure how to automate it but, if you right click on the My Documents icon on the Windows desktop and select properties. There is then a tab for location, you can then change the location to your mapped network drive.

    We do this here and once it has been setup it stays put, automated would be nice but we just have it as part of our new machine process.
