Well, it works for me ;)
I stole this from something a poster to this list wrote. Since I have
1150+ potential users it's very necessary
All on one line, /etc/samba.conf, for [homes]:
root preexec = /etc/samba/scripts/mk_sambadir "/m/samba3/home/%u" "%u"
if [ ! -d "$1" ]
chmod 770 "$1" -R
chown "$2" "$1" -R
chgrp "$3" "$1" -R
I use something similar to create profile dirs - on the fly, but there
are many other ways tof skin the same cat!
