Lets start with the other mistakes you have first:
You do not put the users password here (if that is what you are trying
to do): --password=PASSWORD1
It goes here: samba-tool user create USERNAME PASSWORD
You have: --home-drive=M
It should be: --home-drive=M: (note the ':' at the end)
Now we come to the OU.
You show two variants of your OU: OU=Mmbrs-folder-redirection and
If your OU is at
then you should be using something like
--userou='OU=DmnMmbrs-folder-redirection,OU=CompanyName' or to put it
another way, it is the OU's DN with the base DN removed.
The OU path must exist, it will not be created.
