Bug Description

The option --mkhomedir of ipa-client-install script is not working (Ubuntu 14.04). As a workaround, after executing the script, the following line can be added to the file /etc/pam.d/common-session:

session required skel=/etc/skel/

Unless for this problem and the bug everything is working fine. Really nice!.

This bug is still present in Ubuntu 16.04. I am writing it here, because my problem is with the option "--mkhomedir" of ipa-client-install script. Don't really know what is the cause of the problem.

pam-auth-update is fixed in Debian, freeipa support for it pending

@tjaalton do you have any references to the Debian fix? So Free IPA still needs to switch the toggle to enable it?
