Hi Lars,

Thanks for your answer. Problem solved ("don't check security settings
for profile" was the missing part).

Yes but not needed

Really good question, all the tests show that yes it is (ironically it
is less than W2Kx (for now) for linux clients (have to manually add
posix attributes))
The biggest missing part being replication of sysvol share between DCs
(FRS (2000 and 2003) or/and DFSR (2008 2008R2))

Why is that needed?
In my tests (after first successful attempt) profile loading/saving
works well without the AD server having any special right to the profile
path (it is testuser rlidwka, and nothing else)
