Re: [K12OSN] authentication and home directory from OS X server



I was able to help a district do this. The trick for me was just
mounting home using the Apple OD homeDirectory attribute as it was,
rather than using any symlink magic or overloading homeDirectory with
a local /home path. On the LTSP servers, I just:

mkdir -p /Network/Servers/<hostname.fqdn>/Volumes/Users

and mounted it from the home server using NFS.

Obviously make sure the home directory path in "getent passwd
<username>" matches reality in terms of mounted file systems. Also
make sure NFS is enabled and allowed for the LTSP box on OS X Server
too.

Hope this helps.
