I use Redhat Enterprise Edition 2.4.21 kernel version. In my system all the user directories in /home disappeared. No one deleted it. But I don’t know how it is missing. I had one or two open sessions where I already logged in as root and cd’ed to one particular home directory. From there I am able to access files in that home directory. But not from a new session. In new session it always says no such file or directory.
All my user accounts still exists. I have totally around 10 user accounts in that machine. I haven’t rebooted that machine thinking that I can do something without reboot.
Do anyone know the reason for this and if so how to recover it.
