Our NIS server, "serv1", is running Solaris 2.5 and
"serv2" is running Solaris 2.5.1. Solstice is installed
and executed from "serv1".
I have been using Solstice to add user accounts
onto "serv1" but then moved all home directories
to "serv2". Now when I try to add a user, I get
an error message that the home directory cannot
be created. I give the absolute path (/home_dirs/g1/user)
and the server as "serv2".
The only way around this (that I have found) is to bypass
the 'create home directory' option and create
the home directory outside of Solstice.
I modified the auto_home and dfstab on "serv1"
by adding entries for SUNWadm and added a link
on "serv2" in /opt to /home/SUNWadm. That didn't
solve the problem.
