HTH LHi Lukasz
No, We do not use winbind at all. Our main directory service is still openldap (which is used on all of the linux infrastructure + legacy s3 domain) and Samba4 is used purely as a Windows DC. We have plans to move to only Samba4 directory service but that will take some timeNo, you have understood perfectly Is you [homes] a winbind [homes]?
In our case the separation is done on the posix permission/group membership and physical location of the data - staff and students live on the separate partitions/volumesIf so, we'd rather avoid having everyone in the same folder even if they are only links to the real data. We'd like to separate students from e.g. [staff] [admin] [webstuff] ... if only for readability purposes e.g.
We do do a separation trick (akin to the symlinks that you mentioned but slightly coarse grained) for profiles again through automounter maps. Our profiles stanza is smb.conf is
[profiles] path = /profiles/%G and /profiles will include /profiles/staff /profiles/ug profiles/msc ... But again single smb share
[students] path = /home/students/data read only = No browsable = No then ln -s /home2/students/year7/year7a/student1 /home/students/data/student1 In AD that becomes: unixHomeDirectory: /home2/students/year7/year7a/student1 homeDirectory: \\server\students\student1 homeDrive: Z: How does that look? Cheers and thanks for your time, Steve
