The Setup is this:
Fedora Clients FC5, FC6, Windows Clients, Windows and Linux Infrastructure servers.
Well I was able to successfully setup a M$ Active Directory Server with SFU 3.5 to Authenticate and Authorize my Linux Users. There is some work to do such as creating /home directories for each user and setting the permissions on them but after i do this the user can log into any NIX box on the network, without having a local account.
Now the problem I am having is that when my users log into a linux box that they don't have an account I get an error:
From init 3
Last login: blah blah blah
No directory !
Logging in with home = "/"
From init 5 (Fedora Login Screen)
Your home directory is listed as:
but it does not appear to exist. Do you want to log in with the / (root) directory as your home directory?
It is unlikely anything will work unless you use a failsafe session.
From init 3, I can log in but ofcourse bash is not prepopulated with all the goodies and so on.
From init 5 I can log in but it immediately logs me out.
OK, I am guessing that the Home Directory variable in Active Directory is not being passed to the clients. Because there is no home directory basic settings can't be setup. Now I know in SFU 3.5 that attribute is unixHomeDirectory. Does anyone have an idea as to what file on the linux side needs to point to this? Am i on the right track??
