We've got our roaming profiles stored on a 1U4500 and it's hooked up to Active Directory. Everything seems to be OK for non-profile shares.
For some bizarre reason, our roaming profiles do not sync back to the NAS on logoff. Windows reports nothing in the event log save for an admonition against using offline caching on a roaming profile share.
"Windows has detected that Offline Caching is enabled on the Roaming Profile share - to avoid potential profile corruption, Offline Caching must be disabled on shares where roaming user profiles are stored."
Now, does that 'must' mean 'I won't sync until you sort this out' or does it mean 'I've synced, but you should know...'? If the former, how do I turn off client caching of Samba shares on a 1U4500?
Why don't you disable the 'Offline folders'-option on a client-computer first to test if your roaming profile indeed roames now?
Don't know how you enabled roaming profiles, but I would say never achieve this with the 'Offline folders'-option, but set the path within user-management (local for workgroups or with AD for domains).

We already have offline folders disabled client-side, via a group policy. Our roaming profiles are set up by specifying profile location on a per-user basis (user properties in the 'Users and Computers' admin tool).
We aren't using folder redirection or offline files due to the huge problems these things gave us before we used roaming profiles.
