Should work.
Not showing the security tab is often an wrong right in the underlaying folder.

So in case of this one, i would check this first.
ls -al /data/
ls -al /data/samba
ls -al /data/samba/profiles

chmod 775 /data/  ! In case of a chmod 770 or 750 make sure you have a group set that is known in windows.
Same for /data/samba

chmod 1777 for /data/samba/profiles
Then when createing/settings the profiles in windows tools, first set the UNIX UID, klik apply.
Now set the profiles path, it should result in

# file: home/samba/profiles/username.V6
# owner: username
# group: domain\040users

Do note the UID 2005, that is the one that created the folder. ( user : SYSTEM )



Hi Louis and Rowland,

A big thank you for pushing me to continue this. Thanks to your help, things are working as they should, and that one would expect. For the curious, the final smb.conf for the Samba member server is below this message.

What I did, was to implement the smb.conf I got from Rowland. As I do not want *any* Samba users logging on with ssh, the template homedir = /dev/null, and template shell = /bin/nologin.

After that, I created the /data/samba/profiles directory, set the ownership, and permissions according to Louis' instructions above. I also checked up and made sure that only BUILTIN\Administrators SeDiskOperatorPrivilege, SeSecurityPrivilege, and SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege had got those privileges set. Domain Admins inherit this from BUILTIN\Administrators, so there is no point in setting this for Domain Admins.

The rest was made through Windows Computer Management.

What is different from the Samba Wiki, is the default share permission. It's set to Everyone with full privileges. It definitely has got implications, if something else is set (probably for the worse).

Further on, in the security tab, everything was setup according to the Wiki. Testing the share, it behaves exactly as expected. After that, I assigned roaming profiles to a couple of users through the Profile tab in the ADUC tool (\\smbtest\Profiles$\<username>). Worked according to the book. The profile folder is not displayed when browsing the server (the $ sign), and if it's an advanced user who knows the trick with the $-sign, no other folder than the user's own profile folder is displayed. Profiles are correctly created, retrieved and stored at logon and logoff.

When checking the folders, all ownerships are set correctly. There is just one crucial point, however. Always keep the default share owner (unix root). Never mix in the Administrator account in the shares. At least in my setup, it seems Samba sometimes uses Administrator, and sometimes root when setting ownership, and permissions. Stick to root keeping ownership of the share.

Thanks a lot to those who have contributed to the success! Great work!
