    We are using Windows Server 2016 for AD.

    Only settings applied on my test device are:

    • Force local home directory on startup disk
    • Default user shell: /bin/bash
    • Allow authentication from any domain in the forest

    Think was left as default. We don’t change them anywhere in our deployment

    Fairly straightforward:

    • The device is registered with Active Directory.
    • An AD user is attempting to login to the device.
    • They have never logged in before, so no “profile directory” exists on the device.

    The default settings for NoMachine is to create the .nx file in the /Users/<username> directory. Since they don’t have a profile, this directory doesn’t exist, and so the file fails to be created.

    To resolve this, we change the default settings in the node.cfg:

    UserNXDirectoryPath=”/tmp/nx/”

     

    Do you need any more details?
