Is 'net use x: /home' deprecated nowadays? I just upgraded a very old Samba 2 to 3.2.8 and suddenly no workstations at all can use that command to map to their home directories.
Workstations are W2k, Win XP and Vista in a mix. Neither work.

Samba use LDAP as back end, and the related posts in smb.conf are these:

logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U\.msprofile
logon script = login.bat
logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
logon drive = J:

        comment = Home
        valid users = %S, %D%w%S
        browseable = no
        read only = No
        inherit acls = Yes
        guest ok = no
        printable = no

Ideas are welcome!
