i am u sing AD integrated Samba with winbind,I need to share a samba
home folder for every single user in my Active directory. since i dont
wanna create every user's directory i want samba to manage it. however
i dont wanna place the home folders on default path as the boot drive
(/dev/sda) is very small to store the data, beside that,  i do have
storage /nas/users which is a mount point of my raid array. so
specifically every user's home folder should be created on /nas/users
and this is my home share details in samba.

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = yes
   writeable = yes
   create mask = 0700
   directory mask = 0700
   valid users = %S

after sharing i can see two folders on the samba share
1. admin (which is my valid user and i was expecting this)
2. home ( this is some thing making me confuse, it shouldn't  suppose
to be there )

however, when i click on both folders it gives me an error

"you might not have permission to use this network resource ......
Blah blah blah"[global]

       workgroup = xxxx
       realm = xxxx.COM
       netbios name = nasbox
       server string = %h server
       security = ADS
       obey pam restrictions = Yes
       pam password change = Yes
       passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
       passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n
*Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supd$
       unix password sync = Yes
       syslog = 0
       log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
       max log size = 1000
       dns proxy = No
       panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
       idmap uid = 10000-20000
       idmap gid = 10000-20000
       winbind enum users = Yes
       winbind enum groups = Yes
       winbind use default domain = Yes

further, all other shares are working fine. here is my samba global.
