Question Unable to load home directory


Hi I am getting the following error. But when I checked under what login I am, it gives me my name. I checked /home directory and /export/home/ but I do not have a folder with my username. What is this can someone explain?

Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

Abhinav,
You have already found the solution also..
You said that the directory /export/home/abhinav is not present. Create one in the required directory.

If it is a NFS/autofs directory, create the same in the NFS server.

Hi Rameez,

I have 100+ servers where i use the same credentials. I use my ldap credentials to log into those servers.
Do I need to create my home directory manually in 100+ servers.

Thanks
Abhinav

I dont think you need to create the directory in all the servers but from the server which exports the home directory when you login. This typically could be a NFS server. If you are not incharge of the servers then you could ask one of the administrators to create the directory for you.

As in the previous post, you need to create only in the NFS server.

Just curious... what makes you believe that the home directory exists on a shared NFS server? I cannot see anything to suggest that it is.

I am taking back my suggestion..

I came to an assumption because of the path /export/home/blabla..

Before coming to the conclusion..

Abhinav,

Please fire the following command and give us the results..

df -hP |grep export

Thanks
Rameez
