pam_mkhomedir doesn't make deep directories, so you need to make the 
parent directory of your user's homes. So if you use 'template homedir = 
/home/%D/%u', then you need to make /home/%D where %D is each domain you 
are supporting.

If you still get this with samba when connecting to it, and the home 
directory didn't exist before, you need to add the option 'obey pam 
restrictions = yes' to the global section of your smb.conf.
