From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; chrome://navigator/locale/navigator.properties; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: While trying to install Satellite 3.7 on a system with autofs /home enabled found out that the generation of the nocops and nocpulse users failed (as it could not create the home directories for those users in /home). Subsequently the installation of the files for /home/nocpulse failed as the directory did not exist. Customer had to kill autofs for /home and remove all succesfully installed rpms manually and then re-install satellite. Now it worked fine. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install AS server with autofs on /home 2. Try to install satellite Actual Results: Fails while trying to install files in /home/nocpulse Expected Results: I would expect the home directory for these users to be generated in /var/satellite for example. Additional info: It is generally a bad idea to generate directories and put programs in /home.

This problem is large and ugly, but for the rhn400 release we're going to have to simply make a note in the RHN Satellite guide to make users aware of this potential problem. I'm going to clone this bug as a DOCS bug for rhn400, and we'll see what we can do about fixing this problem in subsequent releases.
