Problems with Samba-based Home-Directory
I'm running CentOS 6.6 on my workstation. There I have a user meikel,
and its home directory /home/meikel ist stored on a samba share on a
server which also runs CentOS 6.6.
In the very beginning I added the mount options for that home directory
into the /etc/fstab file which led to some problems, so I set up autofs
for mounting the home directory.
The autofs seems to work for /home/meikel, but sometimes when I login at
the GUI, I get error messages which look a little as if the home dir
isn't available, I then also don't get my desktop background image. The
two error dialogs which I get in that situation show the following messages:
"Could not update ICEauthority file /home/meikel/.ICEauthority"
"Es gibt ein Problem mit dem Konfigurationsserver.
(/usr/libexec/gconf-sanity-check-2 beendet mit Status 256)"
Sorry for the german, it's not clear to me how to get it in english.
It's something like "There's a problem with configuration server.
(/usr/libexec/gconf-sanity-check-2 terminated with exit-code 256)"
To do some analysis I did the following:
- Restart workstation, wait until login screen appears
