The exact name of the registry key is

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

Under that, you will a key for each user of the form S-9-9-99-9999.....

and under that key, look for CentralProfile value that stores a UNC
directory path of your roaming profile.

Windows caches the location of roaming profiles in the registry. If you
move your profiles on the samba server, your windows would still look for
the profiles in the old directory. To update profiles, open the registry
editor and search for key ProfileList (or ProfilesList, don't quite
remember which). Under that key you would find subkeys for each Windows
user who has used roaming profiles. Update the profile directories, it
should work now.
