Sorry if I'm not beeing very clear.
I have a machine that holds users homes and exports the home dir to the
samba server, ok? Then I configured the server so that each user profile
is placed in /home/$user_dir/profile by setting the line:
logon path = \\%L\%U\profile
What is happenig is that when a user logs in for the firs time if the
directory /home/$user/profile dosen't exist, it is created. The user
works in the client machine and then logs off. The content in the
directory /home/$user/profile is none... but the directory c:\Documents
and Settings\$user holds every thing.
I know that this is a local cache, but what I expected was that when the
user logs off all the contents in /home/$user/profile where at least
the same as c:\Documents and Settings\$user
Hope you undestand now.
