[Samba] canonicalize_connect_path failed for service

Our setup:

Samba (classic) DC: cdr-dc01
Samba (classic) member server: cdr-fs01. This is also a file server
AD realm: CDR.internal

We migrated to AD and came across an issue with accessing shares. The
shares in question worked pre-migrated. i.e using a windows machine a user
was able to access that share. The share in question was locked down to
just that user

Post migration, we are able to access any shares which are not locked down
to users i.e shares which are accessible to groups.

For the particular share in question, we get

 canonicalize_connect_path failed for service user01, path

There is no /home/CDR . Where is this coming from?
The curios thing getent passwd gives the following

The user is not in the local /etc/passwd

The cdr-fs01 has been joined to the AD domain, and we have the following in

shadow:        files
passwd:        winbind files
group:           winbind files

Thank you,
