I can state definitively that this works fine. It's an excellent way to reduce WAN traffic, and makes the login process MUCH faster.

You're looking for the following LDAP attributes (taken from my PDC's smb.conf):

sambaHomePath: \\SERVER\homes 
sambaProfilePath: \\SERVER\homes\PROFILE_DIR 

In my case, SERVER is a domain member server. Not sure if it'll work any other way.

I notice that in the LDAP the profiles are store in a network share. Is it
possible to use a different samba server not setup as a PDC/BDC to share
these profile. for an example maybe setup a little samba box on a remote
site, that stores profiles and home dirs, but still auth against the PDC.
wouldnt that help keep network traffic on the WAN down?
