mounting a user's home folder through pam mount who authenticated through AD has permission denied

I have a CentOS 7 machine that can properly authenticate and log in an AD user but, although their home directory is mounted through PAM_mount, the user gets the following errors when they log in:

(mount.c:341): mkdir \home\domain failed: Permission denied
(pam_mount.c:522): mount of \\\folder failed

The file server on which the home folders reside is a Windows server.

I'm trying to get more information on how to fix the issue and any help would be appreciated.

What does /var/log/secure say about it?

Did you check SElinux?
