Trying to find a solution to creating home directories by using winbind. Have this setup:


session     required      /lib/security/pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0077

With smb.conf:

# Global parameters
        workgroup = domain
        server string = Monarch Server
        security = DOMAIN
        map to guest = Bad User
        obey pam restrictions = Yes
        password server = server
        log level = 3
        syslog = 0
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m
        max log size = 50
        name resolve order = wins lmhosts host bcast
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        preferred master = No
        local master = No
        domain master = No
        dns proxy = No
        wins server =, 
        idmap uid = 10000-20000
        idmap gid = 10000-20000
        template homedir = /home/users/%U
        winbind separator = +
        winbind use default domain = Yes
        read only = No
        hosts allow = 172., 127.

        comment = %U Directories
        path = /homes/users/%U
        browseable = No

Winbind creates the directory in /home/users/:

drwx------  2 thodgkinson Domain Users 4096 Sep 15 16:25 thodgkinson

The problem is that I can not access the directory when browsing to it.

tail /var/log/samba/blah:

'/homes/users/thodgkinson' does not exist or is not a directory, when connecting to [thodgkinson]

Where have I gone wrong? Ideas?
