I am setting up a computing cluster, and have been tasked with setting up a NIS server and client environment. So far I have been successful on every front except for the NIS clients are not mounting the home directory.
I have been following the steps in this article, which has gotten me thus far. I am able to login to the NIS client properly, but when it gets there it throws me to a bash prompt and says
Could not chdir to home directory /nethome/cfduser: No such file or directory. When I get to the bash prompt I can confirm that that
/nethome directory is there, but it is empty.
I am not sure where to go from here. I can supply whatever configuration files are needed and more if needed.
Both the client and server are running CentOS 7 b1804
# Sample auto.master file # This is a 'master' automounter map and it has the following format: # mount-point [map-type[,format]:]map [options] # For details of the format look at auto.master(5). # /misc /etc/auto.misc # # NOTE: mounts done from a hosts map will be mounted with the # "nosuid" and "nodev" options unless the "suid" and "dev" # options are explicitly given. # /net -hosts # # Include /etc/auto.master.d/*.autofs # The included files must conform to the format of this file. # +dir:/etc/auto.master.d # # Include central master map if it can be found using # nsswitch sources. # # Note that if there are entries for /net or /misc (as # above) in the included master map any keys that are the # same will not be seen as the first read key seen takes # precedence. # +auto.master /nethome /etc/auto.home
