Hello Friends, I am using rhel 5.3. First of all I want to discuss what I did earlier. I was using this system(22.214.171.124) as NIS Client. So I had started autofs service and had shared servers home directory (126.96.36.199) on client.
Now I am on client at 188.8.131.52 and will discuss everything of this machine only every time when I tried to add a new user with useradd command, it gave error that the new directory of newusername can not be created under /home/. I did some googling and found I have to stop autofs service. I did same and for every new user a new directory is created automatically under /home.
But now the problem is that I am not able to paste any files into the directory /home/newuser. It gives the error "permisison denied" even when I try as root user to copy data into it. It is only allowing empty directories to be pasted into it. Because of this problem I am not able to upload or download any file to or from this system or ssh server.
Kindly suggest what I can do. How can root user paste data into its non-root user's home directory? Please suggest me
