Configuring Roaming Profiles for a Few Users or Groups
With Samba-2.2.x, the choice you have is to enable or disable roaming profiles support. It is a
global-only setting. The default is to have roaming profiles, and the default path will locate them in
the user's home directory.
If disabled globally, then no one will have roaming profile ability. If enabled and you want it
to apply only to certain machines, then on those machines on which roaming profile support is not wanted,
it is necessary to disable roaming profile handling in the registry of each such machine.
With Samba-3, you can have a global profile setting in
smb.conf, and you can override this by
per-user settings using the Domain User Manager (as with MS Windows NT4/200x).
In any case, you can configure only one profile per user. That profile can be either:
A profile unique to that user.
A mandatory profile (one the user cannot change).
A group profile (really should be mandatory that is, unchangable).
