I use autofs heavily for linux clients e.g.
/home/user1 mounts server1:/export/Home/user1,
/home/user2 mounts server1:/export/Home/user2
/home/user3 mounts server2:/export/Home/user3
Have samba share the /home directory for the "home" share for Windows
made it easy to make it look like all home directories were in a single
parent directory. It had various limitations so I moved away from
that. Each NFS server also runs samba and, if necessary, I use
DFS links. E.g. server1 has most home directories, shares
/export/Home as "Home" in samba, with DFS links any home directories on
#user3: symbolic link to msdfs:server2\Home\user3
The point is that anything you wanted to do with Samba over NFS, you can
probably accomplish by other means.
