Moving user's home directories to NSS partition

Hi all!
Can I move/change my user's home directories to a NSS partition?
I need to setup the user home directory when create user account, using 
\\server\volume at the user home directory field, in iManager.

Can I do this? Anybody here has some information about?

Best regards...

Sure any user residing in eDirectory can have their home directory
residing on an NSS volume, no problem.
Just treat it the same way as if the volume had resided on a
NetWare server.

Can you move User's Home Directories by Hand?
I have a need to move about 200 user's home directories from a NW5.0 server to and NW6.5 server. I was going to do it this weekend. I was searching around on and it seems a lot of people pay a bundle to get a utility to do it. Is there anything wrong with just copying the directories from one server to another and then editing the user objects through console1 and changing it to the new loc? Obviously it will take some time, but is there any actual reason or danger invovled in just doing it this way? Thanks for your help. Hopefully, I can get it done this wee...

Automatically make directories in user's home directory
How can I do this? Basically I want the equivalent of /etc/skel on linux to happen on my netware box. Specifically what I am wanting is a Favorites folder and a Desktop folder made in their home directory so I can use folder redirection to point those portions of their profiles to there. I do not want to hand make these folders in every new user's home directory. Thanks! Adam I see that those mirectories are made automatically. Although I would still be interested to know if there is some way to do an equivalent to /etc/skel because I can see that being usefull. T...

Boot partition's full (whoops), how do I install app's to my home partition now?
Hey, When I loaded opensuse 11.3 for the first time, I used the automatic partitioner and have been loading app's onto my ~8GB boot partition, and now that it's full, I have ~15 GB free on my home partition and need to install a few more app's to get my laptop fully functional. Is there a way (other than copying the boot partition to the home partition and then repartitioning, copying again to the repartitioned drive, and then recopying again to the freed up space) to get the new app's I install to redirect to my home partition? Thanks in advance for the help (pwweee...

Install into user's HOME directory?
On page 86 of the IDM 3.01 install guide for User App, it says that you shouldn't login as ROOT to install, but that the install directory goes into the user's home directory in the /novell/idm directory. Now, why would you want to install something into a specific user's home directory for server-based software that needs writable access? Is there a better place to install the User App to? (/usr or something)? -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Why does the software need writeable access? Except for the logs (and temporary files for JBoss), perh...

Accessing a user's home directory
Hello, I'm building a xulrunner application, and I have a need to store/ access files in a user's home directory; that is, the application may be installed system-wide, but each user will be able to store/access their own files with it. How do I reference the user's home directory in a platform-agnostic way? Thanks!

Copy webparts from admin's page to regular user's page
I'm new to ASP.Net Webpart. I have a very basis question about how to copy webparts from admin's page to regular user's page. I understand that the admin could use the share mode to initially setup his webpart page. Then all other users would see the same webpart if they accesses to the same url. But let's say, if we have multiple departments, and each department has it own admin, and each department may have different webparts to be included in the page. One more requirememt that after the regular user accesses the page on the first time (after the department's admin has set the page up)...

Securing or encrypting a user's home directory
Does anyone have any experience or recommendations with products that could encrypt a user's home directory entirely, where by they would unlock it upon logging into the tree? Maybe something that integrates into the Novell client.

Guidance on User/Directory quotas in OES-Linux NSS volume.
Hello, I have recently installed an OES-Linux server with an NSS Volume. This NSS volume will hold the user accounts as well as some folders that will be shared by all users. I would like to do the following: - Create a folder (e.g.: \NSSVOL:\USERS\) that will hold the home directories of the users. - Give the users a quota of 250MB for their home directories. - Create a folder (e.g.:\NSSVOL:\SHAREDF\) that will be shared by all users. Users can put as many files as they want in this shared folder (:\SHAREDF) but this folder will have a limit of 3GB. Is it possible to achieve t...

Re-associate User ID's with Home Directories
Hello all, When our main server crashed, we had to restore from backup. All the volumes containing our users files were restored back into their original location and server was given the same name, but our users have lost the association between their account and home directory. We started to manually go through and re-associate the directories with the users on ConsoleOne, but this would take days. Is there a tool that could perform a batch operation for such a task? The User ID is the same as the folder name. Thanks in advance, Tim Williams If it were me, I'd...

ifolder 2.1 and user's Home directory
Is it possible to have ifolder point to the user's H:drive? I think it would be much easier to maintain. Also easier on the users they would not have to track 2 sets of files.
