I'm seeing this exact issue: https://redmine.ixsystems.com/issues/12270 where when I check off "Microsoft Account" for a user, and then try to access the shares with a Windows 10 PC logged in with a microsoft domain login. I'm seeing it on 2 Freenas boxes and 3 windows 10 PCs.

Freenas version 11.1 U5 on both.
Windows 10 1803

/usr/local/etc/smbusers does have my username = username@outlook.com

All other shares work perfectly. Set permissions on home directories to 777 just in case for troubleshooting. Rebooted everything a few times.

Anyone else had experience with this? From the bug, it looks like it was never actually resolved.

Looks like I found a workaround.

Added
Code:
path = mnt/BackupPool/Homes/%u
to additional parameters in the homes share. The "u" is switched from U which apparently means "Current Unix username" not "Requested client username."

Unless I'm doing something wrong, it would seem the default settings with Microsoft Account and home folders conflict. Maybe something in the code needs to be updated so that the "u" is switched on any home folders that are set up as soon as any user accounts are set to use Microsoft Accounts? Way beyond me to say though!
