I would be really glad if you could check this. If what you say is true
than the example "Big 500 Users Example" makes just no sense to me. The
example only uses a tdbsam backend and then the setting for logon home
and logon path could just be removed because it's the tdbsam which
counts. And when we cannot use variables in tdbsam I begin to wonder
what the advantages of a tdbsam backend against a smbpasswd file should
be. Is this somewhere documented which backend supports variables and
which backend supports the settings in smb.conf and since which version
of samba? Thanks, Jerry.
