Re: Unix : home directory

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


What is the directory specified by

getent passwd user1

(however you manage users; e.g., /etc/passwd, LDAP, NIS, Samba AD to PAM sid to uid/gid translation with idmap_rid in /etc/samba/smb.conf etc)?

You may be able to do what you want with automount multimaps...
