# ls -ld /home/samba/profiles/
drwxrwx--- 6 root dom_users 4096 Aug 22 16:58 /home/samba/profiles/
# ls -l /home/samba/profiles/
drwxrwx--- 13 Administrator dom_users 4096 Sep 23 22:51 Administrator

# net groupmap list |grep "Domain Users"
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-1423820788-2381578139-3444021595-513) ->
Thus the main directory and the actual profiles are owned by the group
"Domain Users" who have rwx permissions and in the profile directory,
the user owns their own directories...not root
