I am able to ssh user at localhost with the samba user I created from any
computer with a working and related smb.conf.  ssh sambauser at localhost  If
there is no linux account it creates the home directory but it doesn't
allow the user to log in.  I have to create the user on the local machine.
I'm not able to have the user local account created when I log in as that
user?  Every computer I have that I want to allow enterprise login via
Gnome (which I haven't gotten to work yet), I will have to create all the
users on those computers before people can log in?

I am able to smbclient //fs01/Photos -c 'ls' -U sambauser and it will show
me the files and dirs of that share.  I have a share named home and it will
not allow me to see that.

    comment = Home Directories
    browseable = yes
    writable = yes
    path = /home/%D/%U
    valid users = %U

I've tried setting the path to /home/%U for the user accounts
that previously had linux ids and I get the same thing
smbclient //fs01/home -U username -c 'ls'
Enter INTERNAL\username's password:

In all things, Be Intentional.
