Samba Profile problems

Dear All,

i have a samba server configure in my network. all the shares can be accessed, everthing is working fine.

here is my problem.

when i deactivate a user with smbpasswd -d <username> command the user is deactivated. but if the same user do not login to the domain his local profile gets deleted.

i can still see the profile folder on users home directory.

after this i dont have any other choice than again adding the user to the domain.

please suggest me if am wrong anywhere.

this is my configuration.
