I used this tutorial to authenticate a Debian machine with an active directory, and it worked like a charm.
Now, I setup a NIS after I configured my Debian machine. I configured some UNIX attributes for a user, and it seems that the attributes are not being used.
For example: I configure a different home directory. When I check on my Debian, however, it automatically used a default directory.
I started messing around with PAM a little bit, because that's where the home directory is created... but I think the problem lies elsewhere.
What could be the problem? I must've forgotten something vital.
