NAME

pam_mkhomedir - PAM module to create user home directories on demand

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_mkhomedir [options]

DESCRIPTION

The MKHOMEDIR session module creates users home directories on demand, if it does not already exist. It also sets the users home to a default mode of 0755, but can changed in the PAM config. Furthermore, it copies dot files from the skel - per default /usr/share/skel, but this option can be also overwritten in the PAM config

The following options may be passed to the session module



 debug           syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.>





 mode=ABCD       permission for the HOME directory - defaults to 0755
                 in chmod(2) format





 skel=directory  skel directory to use - defaults to /usr/share/skel



The reason for this module was to create users on a ldap directory and create their home directories automatically when they logon the first time on the machine

SEE ALSO pam(3), pw(8), chmod(2)
