If you have samba/ldap running and the users home directories are listed in
The homes should be mounted on logon.
Other way you have [homes] and [user_data] described in your smb.conf
and [netlogon]. In netlogon there should be a batch-file to mount your
shares at logon.

Good Luck

Betreff: Re: [Samba] User's home folders

i have a second question. sorry if i didn't write before.
My server has samba, smbldap-tools and ldap installed.
On the server i have a public directory /user_data with some documents
available to everyone of domain and the directory i told you "/usersHomes"
where i'll make every directory for every user. (ex: 
/usersHomes/username). /user_data doesn't need authentication but a user can
enter in his home directory only.

I don't understand how these directory will be mount from the clients after
the user login.
What are the possibility?
- insert in /etc/fstab two line to mount the /user_data and /usersHomes?
- or autofs?

Thanks again
