Samba Home Directories for AD users


I have samba working with winbind to resolve usernames / passwords from my AD system, I can login via SSH using them, and Samba is picking up the usernames.

However I have an issue sharing the home directories. I can see them shared when I view the shared folders using my AD user, however when I try and go into the folder, it prompts for the username and password, but I just logon unsucessful every time.

Any ideas what may or may not be wrong with this?


workgroup = domain
realm = domain.NET
server string = domain Production Fileserver
security = ADS
auth methods = winbind
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
template shell = /bin/bash
winbind enum users = Yes
winbind enum groups = Yes

comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
read only = No
browseable = No
writeble = Yes
