I'm new to networking and setting up my first network. I'm keen to have all users windows profiles and home directory set to folders on my Buffalo Terastation III, so that regardless of which client they log into they can access their files and their profile is the same.

I've seen how this is done in Active Directory by sharing a folder, and then setting each users home folder/profile folder to a folder on the NAS.

However, from what I read, a lot of users are saying that this doesn't work on a Terastation. The normal procedure is something like:

Create a network folder where you want the user home directories to reside. For example \\buffaloNas\homedirs
Share the folder homedirs
Set each users home directory in Active Directory as \\buffaloNas\homedirs\%username%

And there I think it fails, as I think AD tries to set restrictions on the sub folder, so that other users can't access it, which the Terastation does not allow.

So, is there a work around?

Since you are running the standard firmware did you ask over on the buffalo forums?

AFAIK Samba does support AD integration and should do what you want.

So I would normally say install Debian, but the wiki is looking a bit empty thus far for the TS3...
Best bet is too keep an eye out here: viewforum.php?f=70

Good luck.
