" From: Predrag Zecevic - Solaris System Administrator <predrag.zecevic at 2e-systems.com>
" On Solaris /home is reserved for aoutmounter home directories.
" Please, do:
"     * 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...

or you could set up a /home directory server, with centralized backup
/ data mirroring etc.  this also has the advantage that if a user's
desktop craps out he can sit at any other and keep working while he's
waiting for you to fix his.
