Hi A college has students arranged with Linux home directories according to which year they belong to and which class within that year, a or b or whatever, they belong to e.g.: /home2/students/year7/year7a/student1 /home2/students/year7/year7a/student2 ... ... /home2/students/year13/year13a/student2500 To get at the same data on windows, I was thinking of a share for each of the classes e.g. [year7a] path = /home2/students/year7/year7a read only = No browsable = No ... ... [year13a] path = /home2/students/year13/year13a read only = No browsable = No and mapping a drive letter to the share e.g. map Z: to \\server\year7a\%USERNAME%Deal with it through your NSS mechanism so that the file server knows for \\server\%USERNAME% where the users home directory is actually located and then you can just use the special [homes] share. I do this with winbind and the unixHomeDirectory attribute in AD. JAB.Hi Jonathan Thanks for the quick response. I think I must be missing something here because as far as I can see, winbindd puts all users into the directory specified in template homedir. [homes] then picks out the user from there. At the moment we are using nss-pam-ldapd to grab the unixHomeDirectory from AD. How do I get winbindd or nss to map unixHomeDirectory to something I can then map to a windows drive letter? Cheers, Steve
Hi Steve,Have you considered using autofs to do all of the mapping work for you, so that you have only one /homes/ (or whatever else you want to call it) to worry about?
