Firstly, I really don't know what I'm doing, so there might be some
false assumptions here.
We have 2 servers (both running SuSE Linux 8.1). I have setup one as
an NIS server and one as an NIS Client. That works - users can login
to the client using the same login as with the server. But they then
get an error saying that their home directory doesn't exist. I can fix
this with a simple mkdir and chown but that's a bit tedious. Is there
something else I should do to make this automatic?
I know it would be best to share home directories from one server via
NFS, so that the 2nd server is just providing processor power, but we
are dealling with a lot of source code files and I think it would be
too slow to work with them across the network.
