Description Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2015-02-20 09:30:27 CET
The user's home directories in UCS@school will be automatically created by 
- the first windows/samba login or
- the distribution module or
- the exam module (to be more precisely: the distribution part of the exam module)

If no UCS@school user home directory exist at all (/home/$OU or 
/home/$OU/schueler does not exist), the home directory
/home/$OU/schueler/$UID will be created during the file distribution (distribution or exam module).

In this the following permissions are set:
drwxr-xr-x 4 root nogroup            /home/$OU
drwx------ 4 root root               /home/$OU/schueler
drwx------ 3 $UID Domain Users $OU   /home/$OU/schueler/$UID

So at least all students have no read/write access to their home directory.
This results e.g. in the use of temporary windows profiles.

Workaround: chmod 0755 /home/*/schueler
