SMB Autohome Map Entry Format

A map entry uses the following format:

location [ container ]

Specifies a user name


Specifies the fully qualified path for the user's home directory


Specifies an optional AD container

An AD container name 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) format.

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

  • cn= represents the common name.

  • ou= represents the organizational unit.

  • dc= represents the domain component.

cn=, ou=, and dc= are attribute types. For more information about AD container attribute names and values, see the share_smb(8) man page.
