I was wondering about peoples experiences with mounting users home directories from an Active Directory authenticated CIFS server under Linux. Preferably the mount would be accomplished upon login instead of mounting every home directory on boot (or just mounting /home) and would be Kerberos/SMB authenticated and authorized. I have looked at two solutions so far:
*Automount - an NFS carry over (currently in a mixed Solaris environment). Supposedly works, but haven't seen examples of user directory mounts for CIFS, only auto_direct. And don't know how well winbind works with AD automount configuration (via SFU or rfc2307)
*pam_mount - Just got out of beta and requires suid on mount.cifs and umount.cifs. Also does not work with SSH. Also prone to leaving directories mounted after logout.
What has everyone's experiences been with this same problem? Could you provide any gotchas or trouble you ran into? Any experiences with FUSE or user space tools?
