I am currently working on the integration of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Linux on an Active Directory domain in Windows 2008 R2. I have managed to integrate my Ubuntu 12.04 machine to AD 2008, my user successfully authenticates to the AD logon. Software used: Samba - Winbind - Kerberos - NTP
For mounting partitions, I installed: libpam-mount
Everything works when I mount the share eg / media My config file: / etc / security / pam_mount.conf.xml
<volume fstype="cifs" server="share_server" path="%(USER)$" mountpoint="/media/%(USER)" user="*" />
I can create and delete files without problems.
my problem I currently blocks on mounting / HOME for users (like roaming profile) My config file: / etc / security / pam_mount.conf.xml
<volume fstype="cifs" server="share_server" path="%(USER)$" mountpoint="/home/%(USER)" user="*" options="rw,auto,iocharset=utf8" />
I configured the / etc / pam.d / common-session
session required pam_mkhomedir.so
it automatically create the tree if it is missing, locally it does well, but not with the network mount (well it does not because there's some good directories and files created anyway)
When I open the session, I find myself on the empty desktop, no menu, no application launcher. I have some files that can be found in the user directory on server 2008: Desktop, Documents, Videos, ...
I do not see where the problem is.
Thank you in advance if anyone can give me a little help.
