[Samba] Temporary Profiles

I have got a problem with samba for days now and I don't know how to solve

My problem is, that it doesn't matter if I enable or disable Roaming
Profiles, all I get is a temporary profile.

If i enable Roaming Profiles, than i get a temporary serverside Profile. If
I disable Roaming Profiles, than i get a temporary local Profile.

Can somebody please help me?

With Roaming Profiles I think it is a problem with Filepermissions. Root
get's a full Serverside Profile (not the smb.conf below), but only root.
I just want a local Profile for the users, so it is not so relevant.
