Our LTSP server authenticates to a Netware 6 server; through proper configuration of PAM, the users' home directories are automatically mounted as well.  Be aware that the home directory mounting only works with ncpfs <= 2.2.4; with 2.2.5 it was not working for me.

Here's a guide:


> I am running Netware 6 in my environment and would like the ltsp clients to

> of users/passwords in LDAP.  Does anyone have ltsp clients logging into a 
> Netware server. (I suppose it is actually the ltsp server that is doing the 
> logging in).  
> As well if you are using LDAP such as OpenLdap, Active Dirctory, or Novell 
> Directory Services; is it necessary to have individual user accounts on the ltsp 
> server as well as in LDAP?
> I would appreciate it if anyone could point me in the direction of  some 
> documentation.
