I use Redhat Enterprise Edition 2.4.21 kernel version. In my system all
the user directories in /home disappeared. No one deleted it. But I
don't know how it is missing. I had one or two open sessions where I
already logged in as root and cd'ed to one particular home directory.
>From there I am able to access files in that home directory. But not
from a new session. In new session it always says no such file or


All my user accounts still exists. I have totally around 10 user
accounts in that machine. I haven't rebooted that machine thinking that
I can do something without reboot. 


Do anyone know the reason for this and if so how to recover it.
