[Samba] Roaming profiles won't roam via how-to

Hey folks,

I've been testing Samba 4 with some Windows 7 virtual machines and the Active Directory how-to instructions here: http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_AD_DC_HOWTO.

As far as I can tell, the instructions work exactly as described, except when it comes to roaming profiles.  When I attempt to use those, the user can log in but gets a message warning that Windows could not load their profile, and will use a temporary local one.  The user sub-directories are not created automatically, and creating them manually has no effect, nor do the event logs appear to have further information.

My best guess is that there is something more to do with permissions or the ACLs, but I haven't been able to pin it down.  Regardless, either I or the documentation are missing something.

Has anyone gotten this to work with just the how-to?  Anyone ideas as to what I might have overlooked?

Thank you,
