After releasing intraperson beta, I started working on a administration guide that deals with administration aspects of intraPerson. For more details check http://www.intraperson.com. But I was stuck with one simple thing. It is easy to create users in ldap -- at least I think so; but how to create home directories for those users in ldap whereever those ldap accounts are imported?
I found some solutions But I was not satisfied as every solution has serious drawback attached with it. But after going through autofs documents and hacking little bit, I arrived at conclusion that autofs protocol may offer much better solution to this challenge.
The result is Autodir, based on the autofs protocol.
