Filr Cannot Show OES Home Directories in My Files

I have a Filr installation with existing user home directories on an OES 2 server. (OES2 SP3) I have synchronised my Users from edirectory and setup the home directory volumes as netfolders. Nothing appears in My Files. In the Admin console I edit the account properties of the user and in the Home Folder field it says No. Am I missing something to get their existing home directory to appear in my files?
Any Ideas would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Do the users have the home directory attribute specified in their
eDirectory objects?

And presumably the LDAP user you defined in the LDAP connection has
rights to read that attribute? If that's case, I'd suggest opening an
SR.

I have just got back to the Filr project and the issue was the LDAP user could not see the Home Directory attribute. Adjusted the Edirectory rights and all is good. Thanks for your help.
