    Has anybody managed to find a way of using both AFP home folders and SMB folders?

    What I am trying to do is have both setup on a students/staff login so that they can access there windows based home directory and also access the Mac home directories for things like Aperture, iphoto garage band etc which require a lot of storage room. We Limit Student storage to 150mb so we need to be able to use our current 12TB promise storage to store the home folders for current mac users and future users.

    I have read a few forums with scripts on but i can't seem to get them to work.

    I have got a working magic (golden) Triangle I can login to the any Mac with the any AD login and it works I can see there windows based home folder.

    Any Help would be much appreciated.

    Our Current setup is:

    Mac OS X Server (xServe) 10.7.5 running OD as Master and bound to AD
    12TB Promise Storage Array which we use for OD home folders
    Mac Clients 10.7.5
    Windows 2008R2 Domain Controller
