Sorry for the delay, I've gone out for some days...

Hi Rowland, I'm not the one that ask a uidNumber to a PC name, but I 
guess that some program does: I continue to see computer's names in 
domain home directory even if I delete them.

...ooops! I don't know how that was happened, the wins server param gone 
in my smb.conf; any way I've removed it now, thank you Rowland.

Reading further in the post, seems me to understand that I can hope in 
the next future to stop to see PC's home folders in the domain users 
home folder?

Best regards
