Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

/home/string: No such file or directory


An attempt was made to change to a user's home directory, but either that user does not exist or the user's file server has not shared (exported) that file system.


To check on the existence of a particular user, run the ypmatch(1) or nismatch(1) command, specifying the user name and then the passwd(4) map.

To export file systems from the remote file server, become superuser on that system and run the share(1M) command with the appropriate options. If that system is sharing (exporting) file systems for the first time, also invoke /etc/init.d/nfs.server start to begin NFS service.
