Hi, All,

I have written a perl script that reads in a list of workstation names and checks the system load of each. After probing each system (Linux workstations), it auto-derives the one with the lightest load and completes by automatically logging the user into that system.

It works great 90% of the time, but sometimes a user gets automatically logged into a system that doesn't have his or her home directory mounted. How can I perform a simple check to make sure a user's home directory is mounted to a specific system?

Assume the worst: I only know the user's login name and the workstation to probe (i.e. I don't even know which NFS volume possesses the user's home...)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
