Hi All

I have setup Samba-3.0-beta as PDC for Windows Network..
Users can login from client computers to Samba Server..everything fine.
Actually i used migration process from NT to Samba using latest HOWTO 

After login users cann not access their home directories though home 
directories owner and group is same as user login name respectively..i 
saw this error in the log file on Samba Server

[homes] share not available for this user because it was not found or 
created at session setup time

i have attached my smb.conf file

Anybody Help!

with Best Regards
