autodir - Automatically creates home and group directories for LDAP/NIS/SQL/local accounts…  more info»


autodir for Debian

Autodir requires a phisical path on a disk volume to be used for creating users directory.
That is typically /autohome or something else, where it will create a complete gerarchy
of directories for all users. Autofs is then used to mount on a virtual path (e.g. /home)
each user or group home. Both them are a choice of the administrator, so autodir
comes unconfigured just after installation.

Please, configure /etc/default/autodir in order to use the program, you will tipically have 
to move in advance current contents of e.g. /home/someone directory under /autohome/s/so/someone 
for every user 'someone', but that's definitively your choice. 
The init script used in this package is Debian specific, so please do not bother autodir author 
with report about possible bugs.

Also ensure to have your accounting system (system passwd, LDAP, SQL, NIS or what else)
up and running and home paths coherent with your previous choices. The program requires
also version 4 of autofs, it doesn't work with previous one! The required module is
loaded automagically at startup if available, or you need to have it compiled in
statically in your kernel.
