   delete user script = /usr/sbin/userdel -r %u
   add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd %g
   delete group script = /usr/sbin/groupdel %g
   add user to group script = /usr/sbin/usernod -G %g %u
   add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -s /bin/false/ -d /var/lib/nobody %u
   idmap uid = 15000-20000
   dmap gid = 15000-20000
   template shell = /bin/bash

        template homedir = //

        logon drive = H:
        hide dot files = yes
        null passwords = no
        hosts allow = ALL
        netbios name = Master
        server string = %h server (Samba, Debian)
        logon script = \\\netlogon\%U.bat
        workgroup = OCR
        logon path = \\\%U
        security = user
        domain logons = yes
        log level = 3
        winbind cache time = 10
        #socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
