I’ve just set up AD authentication with my RHEL6 servers (using SSSD/LDAP/Kerberos). Now I’d like users’ Windows home folders to be mounted automatically when they log in to one of the Linux machines.
My problem is that:
-there are far too many users to have entries in /etc/fstab
-users can’t mount without superuser privileges, so I can’t just put a line in their startup scripts
-there is no pam_mount available for RHEL
-autofs doesn’t seem to play nicely with CIFS and Kerberos
Does anyone out there have any suggestions?
pmount allows users to mount filesystems without root access or an
/etc/fstab entry. It is available in the EPEL repository. I don’t think it’s a complete solution for you, but it may get you at least part of the way there.
