I have recently setup Ubuntu ldap client authentication
on karmic and lucid desktop clients and the ldap server is running on an 10.04 LTS server and this
is the links I followed for client setup and probably this also works for 11.04. I could able to login to clients with the ldap user accounts and also, on the clients I used an entry session required pam_mkhomedir.so umask=0022 skel=/etc/ske
l in pam.d/common-session
to automatically create the home directory on client computers when the user logs in for the first time. I know there would be a way to synchronize the home directory from Client to Server so that users have their documents on client and as well as on server.
I have to setup the following:
1. Synchronize the home directory from client to server so that users have their documents on both client and server.
2. Some kind of setup which allow to login and work offline even when the LDAP server is not reachable or down.
Anybody could instruct me please?, Thank you!
