You need to put the Default User directory in the netlogin share. Make sure it is readable by everyone

Subject: [Samba] Problems with Default user profiles.


I currently have a problem where the default user profile is not being picked up - Windows simply ingores it and creates one based on local settings.

I understand samba supports default user profiles, and one can be put into the profiles share like this:

/export/profiles/Default User/

This directory contains a copy of a working profile from a proper user.
The relevant smb.conf sections are:

logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U
        browsable = no
        public = yes
        path = /export/profiles
        writeable = yes
        csc policy = disable

Any help would be much appreciated!
