AD authentication and home directory

Latest response

Hi!

 

I have set up AD authentication and it is working correctly. I would like to change where home directory is created when user logs on first time. At the moment home directory is created to /home/DOMAIN/user and I would like to change it to /home/user

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello

 

You can change below in /etc/samba/smb.conf

 

template homedir = /home/%U

 

Restart samba & winbind

 

# service smb restart

# service winbind restart

 

Its not a good idea to change the template homedir becuase a situation where you have joined domains, In that case user atolani from DOMAIN1 & user atolani from DOMAIN2 will have the same home directory /home/atolani/
