[Samba] Looking for large-ish deployment advice

The only other way that I see to do this is NFS and NIS.

But in any way you will have to store a list of users and associated
So I think that having a logonscript for every user will allow you to
acheave this in the easyest way, besides it gives you flexibility to map
drives, change the PC time and other things on a per user basis

That's the point you have to use a seperate script for each user.

In samba conf file:
	logon script = %U.bat

	comment = The netlogon share
	path = /xxx/logon
	public = no
	writeable = no
	browsable = no

put a [username].bat file in the root of the netlogon share containing
something like:

net use h: \\server1\home\[user]

I don't think that you will be able to have the PDC to self detect where the
share should be mapped.

hope this helps

That's exactly what I haven't been able to figure out how to do. How
would the login script know that joeuser needs to connect to server1,
without having to write a different script for every user? If you have a
solution or a pointer to a place in TFM, I'd be thrilled to hear about
