what is the permissions on /data/profiles? is it owned by root.root and
set to 1777?

also in the [global] section add:

logon drive = R:
logon home = \\%N\%U

change the shares to:

[homes]
comment = Home Directories
writeable = Yes
browseable = No
hide dot files = yes
public = no
valid users = %S
create mask = 0700
force create mode = 0700
directory mask = 0700
force directory mode = 0700

[netlogon]
path = /home/netlogon
read only = yes
guest ok = no
browseable = no
admin users = tech

[profiles]
path = /data/profiles
writeable = yes
create mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
browseable = no
guest ok = no
