Hello Paul,
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 ?
