Dear all,

I tried to configure home directories in my samb4 conf.
I set in my globals:

template homedir = /home/%WORKGROUP%/%ACCOUNTNAME%
template shell= /bin/bash

I added the directory for administrator manually :

Did an entry in smb.conf:

       read only=no

This did not work, smbclient gave me:

[root at node1 etc]# smbclient //localhost/homes -Uadministrator
Password for [TUEBINGEN\administrator]:
Connection to \\localhost\homes failed - NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME

Even when I set [home]
      read only=no
It is the same result.

Any idea to make this  work?
