Hi venerable list
I have been contemplating home directories a lot.
Generally the homedirectory issues is solved via NFS or CIFS. Neither work well in the
"take laptop and work from home" scenario.
I have tried a myriad of clustered filesystems none of which worked really well. I have
tried local homedirectories that are synced with central storage.
Systemd-homed looks kinda interesting since it can be served as encrypted files via CIFS.
That means the homedirectories can act pretty much like a local home but really be server
side (I have seen the same done with union mounts and files served via NFS, it worked but
was a bit wonky). I just wonder if there has been thoughts about how homed could work with
As far as I can tell homed deals with local users. Does anyone have thoughts about how it
could eventually integrate or is it a dead end?
