I should mention that the primary issue with [homes] is that it requires
that the user exist via nss (ie getent passwd domain\\username). You
need nss_winbind configured correctly.
Most of the rest of Samba as an AD DC works very well without nss
configured, but this was never an intended mode of operation for the
smbd file server we now use. As such, things like this come up from
time to time.
