The Smamba 2.2 PDC FAQ says it is bad to set "logon path =
\\%N\%U\profile" in smb.conf, because sometimes Windows clients will
maintain a connection the \\homes\ share after the user has logged out.
I'm just trying to understand this. When /does/ Windows drop a
share? Setting up a [profiles] share as /home/%U/ would suffer the same
problem I take it? And the trick, then, is appending %U to a shared
share (so to speak), not making %U part of the share itself. Correct?
I would really like to keep /home/<username> a one stop shop for a
person's stuff, including roaming profile data. Is there a good way
to do this? A [myhomes] share pointing to /home, and "logon path =
\\%N\myhomes\%U" perhaps? Yes/No/Maybe So?
