 Version 3.0

After the migration to Samba 4 the profile path is saved on a per user base. To convert mass set the profile path of existing users to a server, you can find a script in the cool-solutions repository.

## Installation

After including the cool-solutions repository you can install the packet as root with

univention-install univention-set-samba4-profile-path


## Mass Converting Existing Users

The included script allows you to set the profile path for all existing users. The following command can be used as root to set the profile path

/usr/lib/univention-set-samba4-profile-path/univention-set-samba4-profile-path.sh profile-server-fqdn


Afterwards Samba 4 will look for the profile of all users on the given server in the /home/"username"/profile

## Changing a single user

To set the profile path for a single user issue the following command as root user on the dcmaster

univention-directory-manager users/user modify --dn "<user dn>" --set "profilepath=\\\\<server name>\\path\\to\\profile"


Please notice that all special characters need to be escaped e.g. \ becomes \\

To remove the the profile path root can use the following command

univention-directory-manager users/user remove --dn "<user dn>" --set "profilepath=\\\\<server name>\\path\\to\\profile"
