Hi bob, 

Yes, i have corrected the script online.

I replaced the %USERNAME with %U in the old member script,
and please dont give the user DOMAIN\Administrator any uid. not 0, nothing.. .no uid.. 

My best advice, leave Administrator as is and create a new user.. 
Add that one in "Domain Admins" and that user can have a uid. 

For setting the rights. 

Use setfacl to set the base rights on the folder structure, 
and set "DOMAIN Admins" as group with full access on /home/samba  ( and subfolders ) 
I'll wil change this in the new member server script.
