Here at work I have RedHat 9 with default samba packages installed.
We have a PDC running Win NT4. What I am doing is using Samba, PAM, and Winbind to synchronize the the PDC users to the Linux box. Now this works (and I verified with getent) and I see the local users PLUS the users on the PDC all supposedly able to be authenticated on the Linux box.
I want all the users on the PDC to have home folders on the Linux box to store their files so "My Documents" in Win XP/98 (the clients) can point to the Samba server (ie: \\SMBSERV\trieder) and store their documents/preferences there. Supposedly you can autocreate these folders when the user logs in (I think, maybe I misunderstand?) with `Template homedir = /home/%D/%U` but it doesn't seem to work.
1. User logs in
2. If they haven't before create them a home dir (/home/%D/%U aka \\SMBSERV\%U)
3. Set their "My Documents" to point at \\SMBSERV\%U
Would I use an NT Login script on Samba or what? I'm lost.
(Note - whole purpose of this is to keep my boss from buying win 2k3 server when we can use OpenExchange and Samba)
