[Samba] restoring roaming profiles

I'm running Version 4.1.17-Debian as a DC on a Debian/Jessie AMD64 system.
After rebuilding a domain with slightly different settings, roaming
profiles stopped working.
a suggestion (see Troubleshooting roaming profiles) that gets them
working again - deleting the user subkey from
Unfortunately this requires logging onto each client machine, removing
the subkey, logging in as the user to recreate the subkey then logging
out again. Next I have to log back in as a different (administrative)
so I can change the location of the user's local profile back to what it
was (e.g. if it used to be C:\users\<username>\domainname, the new
profile is created at C:\users\<username>\domainname.000) then deleting
the new profile location.
Not only do I have to do this for every machine but I also have to do it
for every account that has a profile on that machine. This is tedious
and time consuming. Does anyone have a faster way to do this?
