I am looking to configure my linux box, such that

  A user whose home space is on a Windows (cifs) system

Can gain access

I suspect I need to alter entry in auto.home

But I am not clear of the format of the line that goes in their.

In particular, I am not sure, how I tell the entry in auto.home
to resolve the uid/gid of each particular user

Any help would be sincerely appreciated

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely
