Hi, I am struggling trying to get my head around adding automount to 
Samba 4 AD. I can add the attributes & objectclasses but I am getting 
lost adding the users etc.

what's confusing me is, 'defaultMigrationContainer30'. I can find 
several examples on the net that do not use it, but I can also find 
several examples that do. For instance on: there 
is a reply from someone called Ashish saying:

'niscnfg.exe creates the defaultMigrationContainer30 and ypServ30 
containers where all the NIS map definitions for standard maps are 
stored. When you add non-standard maps (that is not not-supported) – 
they are also added under ypServ30 container. Wihout this information 
the NIS Server will not function.'

niscnfg.exe is a windows tool.

So the question is, do I need to add CN=defaultMigrationContainer30 or not?
