The [homes] section is a special section in the configuration file to handle connection attempts to a user’s home directory on a Samba server if it is not specifically defined as a share. LifeKeeper does not protect users’ home directories via this special share; therefore it should be removed or commented out. In order for the LifeKeeper Samba Recovery kit to protect a Samba share it must have a path directive specified. The path directive is used to determine the file system that the LifeKeeper Samba hierarchy protects. The [homes] section does not have a path specified by default because the path is determined at the time a user makes a connection to the Samba server. It is for this reason that this special share must be removed or comment out.
