[Samba] Samba4 roaming profiles & ownership of profile.V2 folders

I've got roaming profiles for one account on a Debian/Jessie AD DC 
server but I can't get them to work for the other accounts. The 
differences are that the one account is also a Linux account in the AD 
DC and is in the Domain Admins group. The other accounts were created 
with ADUC on a Windows 7 machine logged in as the Domain Admins user 
just mentioned. They are Domain Users but not Admins and have no 
corresponding Linux account.

I got that one account to work by taking ownership of its profile 
directory. However Windows 7 currently only offers me two choices for 
accounts that can take ownership of a profile directory (Domain Admins 
and that one account are both listed. Other accounts are not in the 
creator/owner tab).

I've given Domain User full control of the profile folders but that 
doesn't seem to be good enough to get the profiles to be loaded and 
saved (the Linux permissions are 777).

And yes, Ive set profile for each user using the Windows MMC plugin.

Any ideas on what I'm missing?
