You need the user.map

You need to use the 'ad' backend

I think that is your problem right there, if you are trying to create a 
link something like map 'H:' to '/home/%U' in the 'profiles' tab (%U 
could be a username), it will not work. This was raised here recently 
and I said it didn't work, well it does, provide you do not specify '%U' 
in the share path in smb.conf, the only possible problem could be the 
permissions the users dir gets created with and you can fix that with a 
'root preexec' script.

That only works with the 'ad' backend

Never set those, they just slow things down.
