More info...

The [homes] section path had been defined as path = /data2/home/%D/%U/ 
which is identical to our other member servers. I changed the path 
statement to path = /data2/home/%U/ and moved the directories and it works 
fine. What could I have mis-configured that would cause the '%D' to not 
pickup the domain name? As I mentioned previously wbinfo and getent work 

Thanks in advance for any help!
