remote user directory?
Authored by: jasrdunn on Nov 25, '02 07:20:35PM

How can you have your home directory be stored on a remote machine? I set up a user account on a server machine, to be accessed by all the clients, and then on the client machines I set in the netinfo manager to refer to the remote drive for it's home directory. The problem is: I can't access the remote home directory unless it's mounted, and I can't mount it unless I'm logged in, which I'm not because the home directory is missing. Is there a way to mount a network drive and keep it mounted.. even if you log out? ...or to have it automount before the user login screen comes up.
