    Studywiz point elocker to user home area

    We are running StudyWiz on a Centos 5 Box and have implemented LDAP authentication. We are now thinking about pointing the users elocker to their home folder. Users home folders reside on a Server 2003 R2 box. Is this feasible. I am a linux noob but understand that we could (with help from you guys) mount the home folders on the Studywiz (Centos5) box.

    How do we go about doing this?
    What are the security implications?
    Should I just stop now and say it cannot be done?

    I'm trying to do the same with both hosted on W2003K Servers, we host our own studywiz server outside of our DMZ and I've been trying to get webdav authentication working to no avail.
    I'm now considering bringing the studywiz server back inside the firewall and using an ISA server outside to route everything...

    There is an elockerpath variable that you can use when importing users via CSV file. However in order to get it working, I had to create an administrator account to access home areas and then map drives from the SW app server to the root of the home areas. This is internally hosted on Server 2003 and the home folders are also on Server 2003, so whether it would work with CentOS or not I'm not sure.

    I think by now he's either done it or given up

    Argh 1 post on your sign up day and you haven't been back since

    If by any chance you lurk or somebody on here knows who this user is, could you come back and explain a bit further on this, because this is something I would love to do!
