[Samba] Is that possible to create profiles shares into group structure?

It works now!
What did the trick was put the following line in the "[profiles]" share.
Only using the "logon path" haven't made any difference.
path = /home/my_company/profiles/%G/
But it's absolutely necessary that you create the "group" directory (%G),
Samba won't do that and won't create the roaming profile directory in this
