PAM_MKHOMEDIR(8) Linux-PAM Manual PAM_MKHOMEDIR(8)NAME
pam_mkhomedir - PAM module to create users home directory
pam_mkhomedir.so [silent] [umask=mode] [skel=skeldir]
The pam_mkhomedir PAM module will create a users home directory if it does not exist when the session begins. This allows users to be
present in central database (such as NIS, kerberos or LDAP) without using a distributed file system or pre-creating a large number of
directories. The skeleton directory (usually /etc/skel/) is used to copy default files and also sets a umask for the creation.
The new users home directory will not be removed after logout of the user.
Don't print informative messages.
The user file-creation mask is set to mask. The default value of mask is 0022.
Indicate an alternative skel directory to override the default /etc/skel.
MODULE TYPES PROVIDED
Only the session module type is provided.
Memory buffer error.
Insufficient credentials to access authentication data.
Not enough permissions to create the new directory or read the skel directory.
User not known to the underlying authentication module.
Environment variables were set.
Default skel directory
A sample /etc/pam.d/login file:
auth requisite pam_securetty.so
auth sufficient pam_ldap.so
auth required pam_unix.so
auth required pam_nologin.so
account sufficient pam_ldap.so
account required pam_unix.so
password required pam_unix.so
session required pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0022
session required pam_unix.so
session optional pam_lastlog.so
session optional pam_mail.so standard
