       smbautohome - CIFS autohome configuration


       The  Solaris CIFS service can automatically share home directories when a CIFS client con-
       nects. The autohome map file, /etc/smbautohome, uses  the  search  options  and	rules  to
       determine whether to share a home directory when a CIFS client connects to the server.

       For  example,  the  following entries specify the autohome rules for a particular environ-

	 +nsswitch     dn=ad,dn=sun,dn=com,ou=users
	 jane	 /home/?/&    dn=ad,dn=sun,dn=com,ou=users

       The nsswitch autohome entry uses the naming service to match users  to  home  directories.
       The second autohome entry specifies that the home directory for user jane is /home/j/jane.

   autohome Map Entry Format
       A map entry, which is also referred to as a mapping, uses the following format:

	 key location [ options ]

       key  is	a  user name, location is the fully qualified path for the user's home directory,
       and options specifies the share options, for example, an AD container or description.  See
       sharemgr(1M) for information on share options.

       If  you	intend to publish the share in Active Directory (AD), you must specify an AD con-
       tainer name, which is specified as a comma-separated list of attribute  name-value  pairs.
       The  attributes	use the LDAP distinguished name (DN) or relative distinguished name (RDN)

       The DN or RDN must be specified in LDAP format by using the following attribute types:

	   o	  cn= represents the common name

	   o	  ou= represents the organizational unit

	   o	  dc= represents the domain component

       The attribute type that is used to describe an object's RDN is called a naming  attribute.
       AD uses the naming attributes as follows:

	   o	  cn for the user object class

	   o	  ou for the OU (organizational unit) object class

	   o	  dc for the domainDns object class

   autohome Map Key Substitution
       The  autohome  feature  supports the following wildcard substitutions for the value of the
       key field:

	   o	  The ampersand character (&) is expanded to the value of the key field  for  the
		  entry in which it occurs. In the following example, & expands to jane:

		    jane /home/&

	   o	  The question mark character (?) is expanded to the value of the first character
		  in the key field for the entry in which it occurs. In the following example,	?
		  expands to j:

		    jane /home/?/&

   Wildcard Rule
       When  supplied  in  the key field, the asterisk character (*) is recognized as the "catch-
       all" entry. Such an entry matches any key not previously matched.

       For example, the following entry would map any user to a home directory in /home in  which
       the home directory name was the same as the user name:

	 *    /home/&

       The  wildcard  rule  is	only applied if an appropriate rule is not matched by another map

   NSSwitch Map
       The nsswitch map is used to request that the home directory be obtained	from  a  password
       database,  such	as the local, NIS, NIS+, or LDAP databases. If an AD path is appended, it
       is used to publish shares.


       Like the "catch-all" entry, the nsswitch map is only searched if an  appropriate  rule  is
       not matched by another map entry.

       The wildcard and nsswitch rules are mutually exclusive. Do not include an nsswitch rule if
       a wildcard rule has already been defined.


       See the attributes(5) man page for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWsmbsu 		   |
       |Interface Stability	     |Uncommitted		   |
