10.4: Move Users directory to another partition
Authored by: martycastilla on Apr 23, '07 10:26:59AM

I wish I had run across Dan Frakes' article when I was searching, it would have saved me some work. I see his approach any "simpler". There are 4 basic steps in both of our procedures.

  • Copy the original users files with ditto
  • Change the Netinfo setting for the users home directory.
  • Remove the original users files with rm
  • Create the symbolic link with ln -s
  • The only difference I see are the examples used and the amount of verbosity. Granted I added the move command as a precaution. Thank you for the pointer to Mr Frakes article.
