I have nothing useful to reply here, and leave it to those with more
LDAP migration experience than me.

The fsautoresizetab file contain instructions for the
debian-edu-fsautoresize program, which when run will see if there are
file systems that are too full, and extend them according to the
instructions in fsautoresizetab if there are.

There is a cron job that run fairly often which check if a host is a
member of the fsautoresize-hosts group, and run
debian-edu-fsautoresize automatically in that case (note that this was
broken in r0 because of netgroup structure incompatibilities and will
be fixed in r1).  So editing fsautoresizetab do not make anything
happen until the file system acutally become full.

> I like those fsautoresize and shutdown at night groups! Great ideas.

Thanks.  Note that the shutdown-at-night groups do not work either in
r0 (same bug), and will be fixed in r1.  You can download the
shutdown-at-night package from lenny-test if you want to test the fix.

Happy hacking,
