    Hmm, we run 10.9.4 here and its connecting the users home directory fine. We force local home directory then i made a script to redirect the main folders like documents to the users home drive on our Windows servers.

    That's why it works. I think the problems come from using a Windows/NTFS based home directory.

    I'll give the scripts a go if anyone would like to share them

    Obviously the problem with the AD home directory is main issue, but we do notice that preferences aren't fully applied (Finder settings for example, and user desktop background) 10.9 also seems to run very 'laggy' but I'm guessing that is also down to the broken ad/od/smb implementation as the same settings work reliably in 10.6.8/10.7.5 (haven't tried 10.8 at all)

    Potential fix for SMB issue?

    If I try to connect to a share on my Windows server, it either won't connect at all, take 5 minutes to show the contents of a share or show the contents and lock up the finder if I try to access anything.

    If I instead connect to the share like this...
    smb://192.168.1.2:139 (instead of smb://192.168.1.2 which assumes port 445) then the share connects perfectly like it did in Mountain Lion. This is SMB over NetBIOS instead of SMB direct over TCP/IP.
