Edit (tl;dr): I think I may have found the "error" - Guest access was turned off on the
/Homes directory. I turned it on and now I can login as a network user. Can someone explain why this is necessary, if indeed it is, and how it's not a security risk?
Mountain Lion Server is having trouble resolving the path for the Home folder when Network users try logging directly into machine.
Using Workgroup Manager I can see my user's home is set up as:
Home URL: afp://myserver.mydomain.com/Homes/meltemi Full Path: /Network/Servers/myserver.mydomain.com/Homes/meltemi
But I'm unable to log in from Mac Login screen because of an "error". The following gets output to console (full output below):
2/6/13 10:56:05.881 AM authorizationhost ERROR | -[HomeDirMounter mountNetworkHomeWithURL:attributes:dirPath:username:] | PremountHomeDirectoryWithAuthentication( url=afp://myserver.mydomain.com/Homes, homedir=/Network/Servers/myserver.mydomain.com/Homes/meltemi, name=meltemi ) returned 64
However I can
ssh into the server but the home folder, again, can't be found:
myserver$ ssh myserver.mydomain.com Password: Last login: Wed Jan 9 09:37:01 2013 from 10.0.1.42 Could not chdir to home directory /Network/Servers/myserver.mydomain.com/Homes/meltemi: No such file or directory myserver% cd /Network/Servers/myserver.mydomain.com/Homes myserver% ls -al total 0 drwxr-xr-x 2 meltemi nobody 68 Feb 6 10:32 . drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Feb 6 10:32 ..
But it is clearly there at the root of the server (and made 'available for home directories over AFP' in
