Description of problem:
If you do a first time login to a PC where user account information is not
local, you will not have a home dir to log in to.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a Central User Database (NIS,LDAP)
2.Set up workstation to query user databse
3.try to log in on workstation
Actual Results: You will log in with / as your home and no basic settings.
Expected Results: To have an account the same a local login account.
This can be easily fixed by having the following line by default in
the following line:
session optional pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel umask=022
Correction to comments.
To correct this behaviour, the following line needs to be added to
/etc/pam.d/system-auth and NOT /etc/pam.d/serviceconf:
session optional /lib/security/$ISA/pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel
This needs to be added by the authentication configuration program upon service
I'll reassign this to authconfig as an RFE.
