[Samba] Samba 4 mapping share like \\my.domain\sharename

For all who are interested in this feature: to map shares like [home] or
[sales]... by \\domain.name\ instead of servername,ip(\\host\..)
I did it this way. I did not use the ms aduc to set the "map drive to"  in
the profile section. I just created the home directory there!
Then simply set there my logon script "logon.bat". Placed it in samba4
netlogon, containing simply :  net use S: \\my.domain\home\%USERNAME% (or
any other share!!)
And it was up and running. The advantage: As I have 2 dcs replicating
writing shares to a 2 node glusterfs replicating brick (even NETLOGON and
SYSVOL),  the clients
always can reach their shares as long one of the dcs is online.

for that, you need to public the share from within the AD.
