[Samba] Same home path on multiple servers - how to ?

What is the output of getent passwd. It should be the right home directories
of the domain users:

merz:x:36261:513:Rosemarie Merz:/windows/winuser/merz:/bin/bash  <--

Does the paths exist on your member-server? Are there settings in the
smb.conf of the MS which point to another place?
If the settings are empty it should point to the ldap home dir.

Betreff: [Samba] Same home path on multiple servers - how to ?


I have a samba 3.6 PDC with ldap backend.

Now I'd like to add an other storage samba server which uses the same home
directory structure as the PDC.

I have configured the new server using winbind, so the users can log in with
the password stored in ldap.

But the home directory stored in ldap is not used; the new server searches
in /home/UID or /home/DOMAIN/uid.

Any hints? Or suggestions?

	Thanks and regards . Götz
