Not yet, because it is complicated, the problem is that the FreeIPA
server doesn't necessarily know "where" the home directories are.
We assume the user want's to provide them from a dedicated NAS or other
We are tracking the desire to perform operations (like home directory
creation) when a user is created here:
In the meanwhile I can suggest using some script in a cronjob on the NFS
Server that fetches the users list from ldap and proceed to create a
home directory from the homeDirectory attribute, if it is missing.
