I added the Two lines to "smb.conf" but I got below error :

Could not chdir to home directory /home/jason: No such file or directory
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/home/jason’: Permission denied

About "PAM", I have not the file that you said :

[root at printmah ~]# nano /etc/pam.d/
atd                  password-auth        smtp
chfn                 password-auth-ac     smtp.postfix
chsh                 polkit-1             sshd
config-util          postlogin            su
crond                postlogin-ac         sudo
cups                 ppp                  sudo-i
fingerprint-auth     remote               su-l
fingerprint-auth-ac  runuser              system-auth
ksu                  runuser-l            system-auth-ac
login                setup                systemd-user
other                smartcard-auth       vlock
passwd               smartcard-auth-ac    wbem

What is your idea?

You actually have a few problems there and you can fix them this way.

Add this to smb.conf:

template shell = /bin/sh
template homedir = /home/%U

restart samba

Add this to /etc/pam.d/common-account:

session    required   pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0022

and you should be able to login
