[K12OSN] smbldap - using a separate /home file server

I'd like to have samba/ldap authentication, but I want my user's home
directories on a separate server.  I do not want to NFS mount /home on
the samba/ldap server, because I want to ensure that the local admin
users have access to a home folder even if the network is down.

On the samba/ldap server, I'd like to eliminate the [homes] share.  On
the file server, of course, I would create a [homes] share.

Can anyone tell me how to accomplish this?
