No! it allows auto mount that pre created home folder ONLY to the NFS server.
For e.g if I have /xtra/home/nasir alread created, then it automatically mounts
while login to NFS server ( ssh -l nasir NFS_SERVER ). But when I try to login
as the same user to some other machine ( ssh -l nasir ANY_IPA_MACHINE) it gives
the following error,
[root@openipa ~]# ssh -l nasir 192.168.1.222 -Xnasir@192.168.1.222's
password: Creating home directory for nasir.Last login: Tue May 17 04:06:43
2011 from openipa.cohort.orgCould not chdir to home directory /home/nasir: No
such file or directory-sh-4.1$ ls
So it is not working right ? Hope it is clear to you now.
Thanks and regards,Nidal
If I manually create one home folder( e.g /xtra/home/abc
) under than, then I can mount it, but nothing can be
written to it by the user as it gives permission denied
Yes, but it should allow the root user to create and chown the
directory, so the autocreation of home dirs should work.
