    Default Zimbra/Samba/LDAP -remote home directory?

    Is it possible to change the posix in of homeDirectory /nohome to a remote directory? So it'd be like homeDirectory \\192.168.1.250\inbox\user ....?

    So when a user logs into the zimbra server, they get redirected to their inbox?

    Is it possible to do that...?

    Thanks.

    The homeDirectory entry just tells unix machines where to look for the home directory of that user. "/nohome" is one of the "fake" homes that some OS's use. You can set this to any value you want, as long as the machine will understand this location.

    For example if you wanted you could do a setup something like mounting /home as a NFS share to the server located at 192.168.1.250 for all machines that people will be logging into remotely for and storing all users there. There are better ways to do this of course, but that is a quick and simple hack to make it work.
