thanks for your answer.
I don't have a profile share in my smb.conf. If I delete the logon path
entry in smb.conf and sambaProfilePath in ldap, pdbedit -v still show me
a ProfilePath like \\server\login\profile. Is is no problem, changing
the roaming profile to local profile manually on every workstation, but
as I wrote, we have nearly 300 workstations and this is too much to
change it locally.
Any other idea ?
