Hi all.

Quick question, (background 1st)

Using Win2k3 AD with samba as a service (filestore)

Added a user called sb05

Local Group Memberships
Global Group memberships     *Domain Users         *students
The command completed successfully.

Home directory is set to \\dev1\sb05 etc

However, getent passwd shows....


Ergo they don't match up :/

[root at dev1 2005]# cd ~sb05
-bash: cd: /home/DEV-DOMAIN/sb05: No such file or directory

Technically the home is /home/Students/2005/sb05

Any thoughts / ideas why they are different?
