    I can't seem to have a user on my domain have a local profile on this one computer of mine.

    One of my users (see pic), named ben has a local profile... however when I added another user, nicole, using the window on the right. The user doesn't even appear in the profiles settings over on the left. I've logged in with nicole and it says it can't find the roaming profile, and is going to use a temporary profile. But when I go to change the profile from roaming to local, the "local profile" option is grayed out when i'm logged in as nicole. when I'm logged in as an administrator, nicole doesn't appear on the profile settings list, so I can't change it there either... I'm a bit confused.

    My PDC is running samba on a linux box... The worst part is, roaming profiles aren't even enabled in the samba settings!!

    If there is any other information you need from me please let me know.
