Hello everybody,
we have the following problem here:
We've set up a complete samba domain (based on 3.0.20 now) which 
is running very fine including ldap backend.
But we've still problems using roaming profiles (especially prf*tmp) files.
We already tested the veto oplock directive with /prf*.tmp/ and even /*.tmp/
but these files remain always locked. Only "root" can delete them.
Here's the smb.conf of the share, were profiles are stored:
        nt acl support = yes
        dos filetimes = yes
        dos filetime resolution = yes
        browseable = no
        writable = yes
        inherit permissions = yes
        hide unreadable = yes
        admin users = ...
        path = /samba/ages003/data/GES_AZ
        hide files = /lost+found/
#       hide dot files = yes
        comment = PROFILE SHARE
#       hide special files = yes
        inherit acls = yes
        root preexec = /usr/sbin/samba/create_profile_dirs.sh %u GES_AZ
        case sensitive = True
        default case = lower
        preserve case = no
        short preserve case = no
        veto oplock files = /*.tmp/*.bat/
We don't know why the prf*tmp remain locked. Even accessing the profile share
directly and trying to delete them failes.
If you need more information tell me this.

Mit freundlichem Gruß,
