CIFS - Home shares
Users with capitalization in their name (e.g. Test) cannot access their "Home" file share.
So, I set up two accounts on the NAS box (on for myself, and a test account) and named them with capital letters at the beginning, I then set up some shares created groups etc. Then I tried to access the home shares with my user but, I was getting the following error:
Sep 1 03:42:47 sharksevrer smbd: [2015/09/01 03:42:47.296708, 0] ../source3/smbd/service.c:792(make_connection_snum) Sep 1 03:42:47 sharksevrer smbd: canonicalize_connect_path failed for service Jordan, path /mnt/sharkserver/User Homes/jordan
So, SMB is looking in the wrong location for my user... But, why?
It already knows that the username has a capital letter (shows this in the output) so, why is it looking for a home share with a lowercase letter?
I've managed to work around this by FTP-ing in as root and renaming the folder with a lowercase letter but, I don't want to do that every time I create a new user.

Ok, I've attached the file.
I see no users that have caps in their names. Here are your users:
