I'm pretty sure that we have our problems solved by using %m, but I will
triple check and post results in a few hours. I don't really want to
mislead anyone into having a six month struggle as I have had with this.

I do not have any proof to contradict your information, however, the source
code suggests that this advice is perhaps suspect.
The particular module that handles automatic account creation is in
~samba/source/rpc_server/srv_samr_nt.c and specifically at line 2253.
Here is the very line that does the parameter substitution:
all_string_sub(add_script, "%u", account, sizeof(add_script));
As you can see, it is the "%u" parameter that is being substituted. Maybe I am
reading this incorrectly? However, I have performed many hundreds of
installations and have always used the "%u" parameter - and it has worked.
Given this background I respectfully suggest that we should understand
precisely what is happening in your situation by examining the samba logs for
the use of this function give both the "%u" and again with the "%m"
parameters. You can turn up the debug level on just this module by setting
in smb.conf [globals]:
log level = 0 rpc_srv:5 sam:5
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 0
Please would test this and report the findings. If our documentation is in
error I want to fix it immediately.
Thanks so much for your input.
