[Samba] How to enforce client to download the profile form server

Dear all,

i have the following problem. my smb.conf is working, but clients cannot download their profiles from the server. I explain this on an example:
i have two windows machines: #1 and #2
i) i delete all local profiles in windows and a profile of user in unix
ii) login to machine #1, have the win dialog as though i just started the machine for the first time (which is true), set my personal settings in Outlook. logout
iii) login to machine #1 again and everything functions o.k., logout
iii) login to machine #2, i have the same win dialog as though i just started the machine, although it is not the case, since i was on machine #1 already and no settings in Outlook. logout
iv) login to machine #1, the profile is gone, i do not have the win start dialog again, but my outlook settings are gone.

What could it be? It seems that the windows machine uploads the profile to the server, but in case of start on the same machine the local profile is being used. However the new machine does not download the profile, but overwrites it with a new locally created profile. SO, as i see it the problem is: the client does not download the profile form the samba server.

Please help. Thanks in advance.
