Help also wanted with the same issue:-

I am using the the same version of Samba, same version of SLES and experiencing
an identical problem with the "valid users=%S" setting on the homes  share  - "
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED". 

One key difference between my environment and Rob's is my environment is relying
on a Windows AD server for authentication and I am running smbclient -k. 

smbclient work okay with the %S commented out but fails when uncommented

Any help would be appreciated
