Title: #703: nss: sssd returns '/' for emtpy home directories
> Or at least we should IMO add some backwards compatible handling
when this patch makes it to fedora or RHEL otherwise admins might not be happy. From
purely upstream point of view this change is probably OK with me.
> I think the AD provider should synthetize an home dir by default, without any
specific option being set, it's what is considered normal also in winbind land, in
fact I would look closely at what winbind does and do the same for AD users by default. If
fallback_homedir is set, skip the default and use what that setting specifies.
Then why not set a default value for fallback homedir? :-)
I see only one catch here - once we create not null default (for example /home/%u),
how can an admin unset this to empty string and get the "original /etc/passwd"
And do we care about such use case?
