Does anyone have a way to do home directory mapping through LDAP? We've got user directories mounted via NFS to /usr/users and would like to be able to type in "cd ~ted" and go to Ted's home directory, perhaps in /usr/users/students/ted. We do it in Linux regularly, but I'm trying to lead a migration to FreeBSD-sadly, haven't done LDAP within BSD of any sort before. Thanks in advance! -- Jay Chandler Network Administrator, Chapman University
Hey, We are using FreeBSD with Samba+OpenLDAP, each user effectively needs mapping to a local user so what we've used to give us the ability to type : cd ~user and get their home dir, as well as type : id 10000 to get their username/groups... is to install nss_ldap, pam_ldap, edit the files in /etc/pam.d/, there is a lot of good information on this, have a look at the Samba docs as well as the documentation for pam_ldap and nss_ldap. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
