#300 closed defect (fixed)

Better location could be selected for homes

Currently, Samba home directories default to being created under \PROGRAMS\samba\homes. This seems less than desirable, as \PROGRAMS was/is meant for, well, program files and their components, and not user data file storage.

So as not to conflict with the standard eCS and ArcaOS \HOME directory, I might suggest \homes in the root of some volume (%UNIXROOT%, perhaps).

In klusrmgr, I am setting it to the base directory for %HOME%\..\username.

As not to confuse HOME directory (a users HOME directory) with the Samba homes, I moved those to %ETC\samba\homes.

This makes sense as with 3.x we have all data below %ETC%\samba.

How flexible is this? If we do a new install under ArcaOS, could we point this to a separate volume, for instance? If we do that, is there a variable which sscc can read to determine the Samba home directory location?
