No. It's AD. We've just switched from nfs to cifs and we need to
the root cache alive for the automounter.
NFS or IFS -- its still a remote mount, which was the point I'm trying
Network or not, I still have
to go to each client to do something, whether it's install the 2 line
script itself or install something which would install it for me.
This makes no sense.
Did you fail to install ... ssh or rdekstop or vncserver or whatever
when you first installed the systems?
something which is very straightforward. I want this:
kinit -k cifs-user
run every hour by doing the minimum of walking, leaning over machines,
annoying people or else waiting till they've gone for lunch. You guys
know what I'm on about. . ..
Is that all?
I can't see why you need to dump a script in /etc/cron.hourly to do that.
If it was a lcoal machine you'd do .. lets see
lists what's already in the crontab
You want to append
@hourly (kinit -k cifs-user)
So issue the command
echo "\@hourly \(kinit -k cifs-user\)" >> /var/spool/cron/root
one each machine.
It comes down to me not having anything in
place to do this centrally as I can with the LDAP'y things. from what
folk are saying here, there's nothing in a default 12.3 install in place
so I can just do it.
So, let me get this right; you never installed ssh, rcpy/rexec or any of
its variants, rsync, the vnc tools, the rdesktop tools. You can't
configure XDM, KDM or GDM to use remote login.
Oh, right, the vnc tools aren't part of the default install in 12.3 and
only one of graphical login would be, but ssh etc etc are all part of
the default login. So is perl. I can't recall if the library for
remote access is part of the default install.
