[Samba] Samba 3.3.15 Ignoring "Logon Path" and "Logon Home" to Disable Roaming Profiles

Thank you for your response.

I had tried that already and it still did not work.  I tried creating 
new users after setting the aforementioned configuration settings to 
Samba but it still did not work.

Do I need to remove the LDAP user entry completely and not just the 
value?  For instance, will a blank value for sambaProfilePath (or 
whatever ) inside LDAP still cause Windows to attempt a roaming profile 
load regardless of what Samba has in its configuration settings?
