authentication with Fedora Directoy Server

Postby kashif » Mon Nov 03, 2008 10:48 am

aoa,

I am working on a project which will authenticate user from Fedora Directory Server.

I have done most of the work.

user is able to authenticate from from FDS, and its home directory also mounted automatically from server through NFS and automout.

I am facing a trivial problem in this scenario so for, as all the user account exit in FDS , not in the system account on server, so when I create the home directory of a user on server, to whom its ownership and group should be set ?

So for I set permission 777 which works, but 777 is not practically workable.

Thanks in advance for any good response

don't you have userid/groupid fields for each account in fds? you can do something like "chown 1004:1022 /home/someuser".
