Good Afternoon:

I am getting the following message on several of my Win98 clients that are connected to a Win2000 Small Business Server:

Your local profile was created when the home directory was disconnected. Do you want to use the local profile to overwrite your home directory profile?

I'm not sure if this is indicating some sort of communication problem.

Thanks for your ideas!

I think its perfectly normal. I have gotten that error with Samba before.

This message appears the first time you connect to Samba, or the first time you use your Samba account on a new PC. It may also appears after the PC was halted without doing a proper shutdownp

Hi Hardware Junkie:

Do you only get the message the first time a client connects to Samba or does it happen frequently?

When it happened to me it was only the first time.

Does yours happen every time?

It happens occasionally and at different clients.

I suppose the users could be making changes(passwords, etc.) and that may cause it?

If it has to copy the new profile to the drive, it would prompt it; I am sure...
