I'm currently working on setting up a Solaris 9 box. As I try to useradd
it's complaining to me that it cannot create the user's home directory.
If I do a useradd -D to see the default it's showing the home directory base
as being /home
However /home looks like
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 1 Nov 30 09:45 home
In the past, I've seen home directories at /export/home
What is the "proper" way to proceed here? Change the perms on /home so that
root can create directores or change the default home directory base to
/export/home? In the linux world it's /home/user. I'm not really sure
where this /export/home/user thing comes from.
