Hi Tom I think I've seen this before, but I can't remember what it was exactly.NB I think the list at skolelinux.no is pretty much dead, yours is the first I've seen in months.

I have a SckoleLinux server installed with the main server and workstation options selected for install. I have 10 workstations with SkoleLinux installed. I made a mistake when installing some of the workstations using sitesummary2ldap so I removed them using GOSA2. I used 'sitesummary2ldap -a -i ether-xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx -t workstations' to put the workstations back on the server. The workstations that I had NOT added and removed previous to this worked. The workstations that I had added by mistake and removed previous to this came up with the following error whenever any user attempts to log in: 'Cannot enter home directory. Using /.' I can recreate this on a Virtual Machine setup by adding a workstation client to the VM server (it works at this point) and then removing it through GOSA2 and adding it again through sitesummary2ldap. When I try to log into the VM workstation I get the 'Cannot enter home directory. Using /.' error again. There is then the additional message: 'Missing user home directory Check if the current computer DNS name is in the NIS Netgroup workstation-hosts and authorized to mount the home directories from the NFS server. This is done using Gosa, https://www/gosa' The workstation is in the workstations-hosts group. This can be seen in gosa and when running 'ldapvi'. I have checked ldapvi when the workstation in first added then when removed then when added back. When it is first added and added back the entries are identical. when the workstation is removed the entries about the workstation are not there. In the VM I have changed the workstation's MAC address and tried adding it again but get the same error. After I had caused the problem I returned the VM server to the point it was before adding the workstation then added the workstation that I had broken before. That was successful and without reinstalling the workstation I could logon. At the school I am installing this in I have reinstalled the server and started again but if this happens once it is being used I would like a way of solving the problem. Any help would be welcome, Tom Duguid.
As a quick fix: "apt-get remove nscd" on TJENER.We are currently investigating the best approach for NIS netgroup issues in nscd troubling the Debian Edu main server (TJENER).
