Thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately, I had to disable 'obey pam
restrictions' because https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1860.
With it and security = ADS, machine_name home folders are created
instead user_name home folders in homedir.
I think for now root preexec is the way to go? I need something to check
for username, create folder if not existed, then assign permission?
