FDS and automatic home dir creation

Hi All,

I just found out about the fantastic pam_mkhomedir.so pam module. I have it working somewhat, I just need to know if what I want to do is possible. Here's my setup:

FC4 with Fedora Directory Server 1.04 and is also the NFS /home share.

Then I have client machines that use the FDS and the /home to provide central login and /home dir capabilities. the /home dir itself is NFS export RO and only the user dirs are RW within it.

using ldap attributes, I do not let users login to the FDS /home share server, just the clients. I want to know it it is possible that the first time a user logs into one of the clients that it can somehow be passed to the /home dir server to create the users home dir.

I have it working with test users currently, but ONLY when they are allowed to login into the /home dir server, not any of the clients.
