Re: Home directories blank in diskless workstations

On the server it can be caused by manual partitioning without a separate
partition for /skole/tjener/home0. If home0 is not listed in
/etc/fstab, that would be the cause.
On a client, it is most likely caused by missing netgroup membership
causing NFS mount from the server to fail. It could also be caused by
autofs problems, which was the issue I wanted to detect when I wrote the

That is strange. I would expect misconfigured autofs to trigger the
message, not hide it.

Both would be good to look for on the main server. But they might give
false alarm with manual partitioning.
