is 'kilbirnie' home folder actually owned by user.kilbirnie ? I am
unclear about the user. prefix
The user.kilbirnie is the user id that has been setup in the NT4 Domain.
Have assigned user to be owner of the home drive. Tried with the group
(domain user) to have full access fro testing
drwxrwx--- 2 DOMAIN\user.kilbirnie DOMAIN\Domain Users 4096 Oct
2 11:00 user.kilbirnie
