For the mount, use pam_mount, it work great. Pam_mount will mount share
dynamiquely for earch user on the Linux client.

> Is there a way to connect to the Windows user home directory share from a Samba client automatically?
> At the moment I can manually connect to the share using "mount -t smb" using the usual hidden/protected credentials file. Obviously this needs editing every time my domain password changes (as enforced by policy).
> However, since getting the workstation to authenticate me from the domain controllers (i.e. via Samba), manually mounting my home directory (with an independent password setting) seems very cumbersome.
> It's also complicates the scenario of multiple users using one workstation.
> Ideally one could log into the Samba workstation with their domain credentials and their UNIX home directory be connected to the Windows home directory.
> Has anyone found a slick way of doing this? Or at least any way of improving the situation.
