[Samba] transferring profiles

Actually I found the correct procedure -
Share the profile directory
As the administrator, select Control panel, system, users profiles
Select user profile you want to export
Select "Copy to"
Select folder to put profile in
And here is the clever part
Select Everyone in the "Change" permitted to use box.
Profile will be exported with permissions to allow the new user to use

It has worked well, although outlook data is still in the original
folder, which is a real pain to move.

Ever tried to copy the whole profile to a /home/%U/profile
and see what happens?

Perhaps you need to fix the SID in a couple of places.
It's bound to be fun.
