Summary but not quite fixed: RE: Problems creating users in LDAP

Thanks to Will Dowling, I'm not getting the home directory errors any
more, and I can log on locally to our Sun boxes.  Basically, I have to
manually create the directories on each of the clients.  But this brings
up another issue.  The users created by my predecessor can log in, and
their /export/home/$username on the LDAP server is their home directory.
I can't do that, I had to create home directories manually on each
client box.  Did I miss something?
