On Solaris /home is reserved for aoutmounter home directories.
* edit /etc/auto_master and change '^/home' to '^/autohome' (or
something which has to be created) - it is 2nd line
* after reboot, rmdir /home and run ln -s /export/home /home (former
is usual user HOME location)
I am doing this on all our boxes ... because we have lot of Linux like
users in env...
