As far as I know, leave the "home"  in smb.conf [global] empty and the ldap
entries will work.

Good Luck

Betreff: [Samba] sambaHomePath usage

My name is Camelia Botez and I'm linux system admin.
I try to configure samba server usind ldap authentication and different
sambaHomePath from login home directory.
For ex. A user user_test has his home (login) directory /home/user_test and
I want , using samba map on windows to have /srv/user_test home directory
for this user.
We included in ldap schema 2 attributes sambaHomeDrive (H: ) And
sambaHomePath  that for a test user is /srv/user_test instead of
In ldap the value of the sambHomePath is
\\server_name\srv\user_test<file:///\\server_name\srv\user_test>  and in
smb.conf I use in [homes] paragraph path = %H valid user = %S.
When I map this user on windows I go into his login home directory , so
there is no influence of sambaHomePath.
How can we split these 2 "home" directories , one on login and second on

Thank you
