Creating a home directory

After you have added the IBM® i principal to the Kerberos server, you need to create a /home directory for each user that will connect to the IBM i applications.

This directory will contain a file that contains the name of the user's Kerberos credentials cache. Each user should either be the owner of this directory or have the appropriate authority to create files within this directory.

To create a home directory for a user, complete the following step:
  1. On an IBM i command line, enter CRTDIR '/home/user profile', where user profile is the IBM i user profile for the user.
    Note: If you plan to use this user profile as a target EIM association, the user profile must exist and the password can be set to *NONE.
