I was trying to see whether I could mount the NFS share manually. Thats why I
tested the first step.
I have two machines configured now. One IPA server and the other one as IPA
client(with --mkhomedir switch) configured as an NFS server too. Here the /xtra
partition with a home subfolder is the NFS export. Now when I create a user in
the IPA server, from where shall I try to login first ? from the IPA server or
NFS server ? or do you want me to try from a different machine ? In that case,
I will have to install IPA client on one more machine. Currently cd
/home/<someuser> is saying "no such file or directory" from both these
machines.Here is my requirement in one sentence:
Whenever a newly created user is logged in from any client machine, a home
folder should be created in my NFS server under /xtra/home as
/xtra/home/$USERNAME and mounted to the client machine she is logged in as her
Thanks and regards,Nidal
What is it you are actually trying to do here, mount every single /home
directory? To test automount I tended to do: cd /home/<someuser>. It
should be automatically mounted.
If your machine is configured to use IPA for identity then yes, it
manages all users and groups (e.g. you used ipa-client-install).
And you configured this to automatically create the homedirectory,
right? I wonder if there is a conflict/race with that.
This line apears to be ok. Does it work if you do cd /home/<someuser> ?
