    Cannot chown /home + openldap


    Hello forum,

    I'm going mad with a specifi problem on openldap.
    I cannot chown -R any file at all as when I'm doing that then all /home/* directories change user and group and not just the particular one where I am passing to the chown command.

    An example:

    cd /home/user1
    chown user1omain\ Users * -R

    then it starts changing the permissions not only to /home/user1/* but to everyone at /home/

    Any help is realy appreciate.

    Thanks

    chown user1omain\ Users * -R
    why are you using '*'? -R option will change ownership of all the files/folders in 'User' folder.

    Code:
    cd /home/user1
    chown -R user1:Domain Users
