[Samba] pam_winbind get attributes?

I am attempting to map the "home directory" of users as they login using pam_winbind by getting the attribute from Active Directory.

It appears that in pam_winbind.c
	_pam_set_data_string(pamh, ctrl, PAM_WINBIND_HOMEDIR, response->data.auth.info3.home_dir);

Does not actually contain the homedir, it contains nothing. Is this because I'm using it on a MS AD domain rather then LDAP?

If I do (using ldap-utils):
ldapsearch -h server -D "CN=My User,OU=something,DC=domain,DC=com" -b "DC=domain,DC=com" -x -W homeDirectory

I retrieve the active directory home drives.

However I'm wishing to implement mounting either in pam_winbind or pam_mount.

This ldapsearch part requires me to use -D bindDN and -W

I did read about anonymous logins, but is there a way to query this information within pam_winbind or other suggestions?
