> You can share it, you just cannot use individual paths to the users home
directories, it has to be whatever the default is or what you set the
template to. This is one of the reasons it is not recommended to use the AD
DC as a fileserver.

Wow that is a major shortcoming.  Many small businesses, home users, and
nonprofits don't need multiple boxes for their server needs.  Seems aweful
shortsighted to exclude this fairly large cross-section of users.

So you are saying the AD DC needs to have all home dirs in
/home/workgroup/username or it won't provide unique smb shares to them?

Can you provide you wmb.conf fragment for the home share?
