NIS created users without a home directory

Link to this post 27 May 14

Hi all,

So I have created two Centos machines. One is configured as a NIS master and the second is a NIS cleint. The NIS configs are all working perfectly.

I created a user nisuser on NIS Master and I can use it on the client. BUT it doesnt show a home directory . Ive been told there is something else like automount of autfs that I need to configure that will automount the home directory onto any client. I havent done any such configs.

Can you guys guide me as to what exactly I need to study or redirect me to a good tutorial ?
