Creating network login directories from a NAS
Here's the situation for a client. They have a NAS and some Red Hat boxes. What they want is for a users home directory to be stored on the NAS and mounted on any given machine when they log on it.
What i have tried is setting up an NFS server to act as a middle man. I mount the NAS shares on the NFS server and then try exporting them to the Red Hat boxes. Another thing i tried was pam_mount. Each to no avail.
Am i overlooking a simple solution to this? From what i understand NFS can only export resources that are physically on the machine. Of course these are not on the NFS server, but on the NAS.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
