I suspect the problem won't be with corrupting the profiles. It will be
with slow logins and logouts. The simplest way is simply to mount your
new drive as /opt/samba/profiles. Or you can just change your profiles
line in smb.conf to point to the new location (then restart samba).
Either way, Samba will recreate the profiles when the users log in or out.
Unfortunately, recreating profiles is slow. Depending on how many users
and how large their profiles are, it could lead to very long logins/outs.
Providing no one is logging in or out, you can just copy the old
profiles to the new location. This could be done overnight if you don't
have anyone on the system at that time.
