Can't change LDAP attribute "NFSHomeDirectory" for mac clients

openldap
nfs
macos

#1

I have a problem where the Apple Directory Utility is showing /home/username for the “NFSHomeDirectory” item. It’s causing all sorts of issues on our macs that are trying to write logs to file:///home/username/Library… which doesn’t exist because we are using SMB for home folders. How do I change this attribute in UCS 4.2-1 errata 122.

As far as I know the LDAP attribute homeDirectory is what macOS interprets as NFSHomeDirectory. You can find that attribute in the UMC’s user management on the “Account” tab in the “POSIX (Linux/Unix)” group. It’s called “Unix home directory” there.

I figured out how to modify it with udm users/user thanks.
