I just logged in with the same user via ssh that I am currently testing with.
 I go directly to that users home folder and can see files.  When doing a "ls
-al" all files show up as being owned by the correct user. I can delete,create
and move files. 

I have 2 servers, both installed with K12LTSP 4.4.1.  One server has /home and
all of my users.  I can log into this server without any problems.  I want to
add another server and nfs mount /home from the original server.  I need to
sync the users between boxes.

What syntax do you guys use to export /home, mount /home, and which user files
do you copy to sync users.  I don't get why this isn't working, being
identical versions I would think this should be extremely simple.
