In our samba3 days, we provided a homedirectory like
Now, with samba4 / ADUC using "\\filehost\username" gives the error:
"the home folder could not be created because: the network name cannot
be found". We have a little root preexec scripts creates the directory
and sets permissions, so ADUC only needs to accept the
"\\filehost\username", no further action required.
ADUC accepts it, when I use a FULL servername:
However, that full name does not work in windows explorer. ("Check the
spelling of the name. Otherwise there might be a problem with your
network") Therefore, the GPO drive mapping fails, and users logon with
no home drive mapping.
In short: using ADUC we currently have no way to configure a valid home
So the question: have I got a problem with my network (like ADUC tells
me) or is there a way to simply make ADUC accept a valid home folder path?
I looked at samba-tool to edit the user there, but it only can
create/delete users, no modify... :-(
I have read https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_a_home_share,
but that's a whole new approach, and I'd rather have ADUC simply accept
the path I give...
