Resending this message:
I have small environment with one FDS server and one application
server, both RHEL4ES. FDS server provides ldap authentication and home
directories for app server with ldap and nfs.
I administrate users and groups with phpldapadmin or windows based
ldapadmin, everything is working fine.
When I add new user to the FDS, I have to create home directory for
that user manually, set permissions and copy /etc/skel files.
I would like to do home directory administration tasks automatically
when user is added or deleted from FDS.
One solution (I don't like this) is that I use some command line ldap
capable adduser instead of ldapadmin or phpldapadmin.
Does FDS have any event support that I could use or are there any
existing solutions for this problem?
you can set pam to create the home dir on first login
but you would still need to remove manually.
another option is a cron job that runs a script that creates and deletes
