Hello all... 

We used Samba 4 since a long time and since we upgrade to the Samba
4.16.1 we have some problem with some Windows clients.... but the
problem is randomly on one client or another one.... sometime twice a
day sometime no problem during 2 weeks... sometime just on one PC with
windows and sometime 3 or 4 PC with the same problem. 

In fact the user completely lost the desktop or the documents during 1
hour more or less... to get them back we have found that if we cut the
network (unplug it) the files are come back and the profile too. 

There is a GPO which redirect the Documents, Desktop and all the profil

Do you have some idea ? 

Thanks for your repplies !
