Description Krischan Jodies 2003-10-13 10:49:55 UTC
When using the ldap backend neither logon path/home from smb.conf nor the 
attributes sambaProfilePath etc. are parsed for macros. The client gets paths like 
\\server\%u\profile from the pdc.

Expand %N in talloc_sub_basic for passdb backend usage

This bug report is not entirely correct. The problem here is that we
do not expand all the macros in passdb. Especially %N is not expanded. We
should
really do it, as it is in the default profile path. See attached patch.

Use %U in place of %u in logon XXX parameters.

Applying Volker's patch and closing it out.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
