Meanwhile we've come many steps further, and a new issue has risen. In
samba4 AD we have a user with:
- homeDirectory \\server\username
- homeDrive P:
- scriptPath logon.bat
When this user logs on, logon.bat is executed successfully, but
homeDirectory is NOT mounted on P: and in the logs we see:
canonicalize_connect_path failed for service username,
It seems that samba is thinking that homeDirectory should be in a
path-form, and not a UNC? However, most (if not all?) docs tell me that
homeDirectory should be a UNC...
This is Version 4.1.4-SerNet-Debian-7.wheezy. The [homes] section:
comment=Home directory for %S
read only = No
browseable = No
Now, if I add "path = /home/%S" to the homes section then things
suddenly start working.
Anyone else seeing this? Is this expected behaviour?
