The following recipee is for creating a new cluster-wide user on fs:
- create a user, whose Home Directory is /FS/local/home/uid, where uid is the new user. A student user (for the lab courses) should be created similarly in /FS/local/homeE/uid.
- change the home directory in /etc/passwd from /FS/local/home/uid to /home/uid (or /FS/local/homeE/uid to /homeE/uid).
- Add an export line to /etc/auto.home or auto.homeE
- cd /var/yp; make
Nothing else should be needed. / ES (31.3.2014)
