Please let me introduce my problem with Samba 4 configured as PDC with roaming profiles.
After login to domain in Windows XP all the "desktop.ini" files are visible everywhere. 
To avoid this there was a possible parameter "hide files" or "hide dot files" in smb.conf, which is not available in current version of Samba.

This is what I get running Samba with these parameters:
Unknown parameter encountered: "hide files"
Ignoring unknown parameter "hide files"

How to solve the problem with other way? Why this parameter is disabled in Samba4?
