[Samba] Script question

I've got the following script that I want to run every time a user logs in to the Samba server, whether it be from a mapped share or by opening a telnet session into the server and logging in that way.

Here's the script:


DOMAIN=`echo $USER | awk -F_ '{print $1}'`
USERNAME=`echo $USER | awk -F_ '{print $2}'`

if [ $DOMAIN = "MA" ]; then
  if [ -d /home/$DOMAIN/$USERNAME ]; then
    mkdir /home/$DOMAIN/$USERNAME

It's not the prettiest, but it does what I want, which is create the users home directory if it doesn't exist.

Now, I know there were a couple of options in the smb.conf file for doing this, but I can't get it to cooperate.  Can anyone help, or offer an alternate means?

Thanks and regards,
