Fixed, from the O'Reilly manual Chapter 5.4.2 Mangling Options
add mangled names = no ( works in the per share space, not sure about

comment = %U's Home Directory
path = /home/%U
read only = No
acl check permissions = Yes
force security mode = 0775

inherit permissions = Yes
inherit acls = Yes
map acl inherit = Yes
case sensitive = No
veto files = /.tnatr:*/
browseable = Yes
vfs objects = zfsacl
mangled names = no
