question about nis+ support

I am trying to make a PDC get home directory paths from an nis+ table.
I compiled samba with --with-nisplussam, --with-nisplus-home and
In the smb.conf, I enabled 'nis homedir' parameter and set
'homedir map' to the nis+ table where the home directory paths
are kept in "username server:/some/file/system" format.
When I try to access a home directory on the samba server with
smbclient, I get the error message:
tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnosuchshare (You specified an
invalid share name)
and in the log.smbd file:
couldn't find service baris
(baris is the username for which I am trying to accesss home dir).
I think it can not get the path from the nis+ table.On the nis+ server
I ran snoop to listen to the traffic, but it seems that my PDC samba
server does not even ask for the nis+ table in which the home directory
paths are kept.
I would be very grateful if somebody could explain where I am doing
wrong or send the correct settings of smb.conf for nisplus home
thanx in advance
