Thanks that's a good idea, but nope. It doesn't work in winbind:
I want a student who has a home directory in
and a teacher who has a home directory in:
path = /home2/DOMAIN/staff<staff name>
I can't do that with winbind.
As both unixHomeDirectory and the homeDirectory attributes are available
in the 20008r2 and Samba4 schemas, why not simply write the values _you_
want into the directory and map it using nss-ldapd? As m$ make it
available, surely this is what they intend us to do.
