Hallo Roman,

I had the same question some month before. One solution I got :
delete sambaProfilePath in Ldap and set
*l*ogon path =
no empty string, nothing but an end of line/

then a new user get default and local profile 
on the machine. If  the user was logged in before on the machine, 
windows still using serverbased profiles.

Best regards,
