SUSE Home Directories shared with Debian Servers


Where I work I want to setup that all our Debian Servers take the home directories/login etc from a Suse File Server. With this method we will be able to create users only on the SuSe Fileserver and automatically will be available on the other servers.

How is this possible please?

Sounds like you are looking for combined ldap,kerberso,nfs. Google for turotials/howtos.
There should be packages for both Debian and Suse. I've not used this before, but from what I've heard you will be required to do a significant amount of work to set it up properly.
