the 'a' means patch level 1, it is a bugfix against the stable version
2.2.3 no alpha!

why you made it domain master but not local master ?

Windows clients can sometimes maintain a connection
to the [homes] share, even though there is no user
logged in. Therefore, it is vital that the logon
path does not include a reference to the homes
share (i.e. setting this parameter to \%N\%U\pro
file_path will cause problems).
1. it is better you use a separate directory and share for profiles
(I saw that setting the directory 1777 is a nice solution as everyone
can write/create a profile, but only owners will be able to use/modify
2. better you use %U (uppercase)
