    for the last 3 days i have been reading different articles on web in regards to that and keep on trying , some of the tips are incompleted and not giving full steps , it just driving me crazy , so much confused now.

    finallly i got the follwing article , i followed till i managed to join the domain successfully .

    BUT! i was stopped when it says u must add manually the "home directory" in smb.conf file , i was not sure about the syntax so ijust did like that

    path=/home/"my domain name"

    then after that it says to edit PAM files , i don't know what to edit , what to add? pls help i m so exhausted

    Samba homes


    the homes can be defined as the users default homedir like:

    path = /home/%U (%U is name of user that is logged on)
    browsable = no (to prevent other users)
    writable = yes (so you can write to it)

    the path can be defined to what ever you want. But it must be an existing folder
