    Dear all,

    Autodir written to overcome some of pam_mkhomedir limitations
    like,

    1) There are some applications which never need to authenticate users
    But they need home dirs.

    2) Some do use other ways to authenticate, bypassing pam all together.

    3) Servers must be root so that pam can create home dirs. Otherwise
    make /home similar in permissions to /tmp

    And there are other interesting features supported by Autodir like
    transparent backup for 24x7 online systems and many more.

    Autodir uses autofs Linux kernel module to transparently create home dirs
    And for more information check http://www.intraperson.com/autodir/

    And here is Autodir-HOWTO

    Regards
