COPY_HOME(8) System Manager's Manual COPY_HOME(8)
copy_home - fetch default startup files for new home directories
/home/groupname/copy_home /home/groupname /home/username
Available only on Sun 386i systems running a SunOS 4.0.x release or
earlier. Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.
Whenever snap(1) is used to add a new user account, the copy_home
script in the selected primary group's home directory is executed to
copy the default files to the new user's home directory, and also per-
form any additional custom setup.
copy_home copies default environment files, such as .cshrc, .login, and
.orgrc, from a group's defaults directory to a new user's home direc-
tory. It is started by user_agentd(8) when snap(1) is used to create
new home directories on a Sun386i home directory server.
Every new group created by snap(1) has a home directory, which can be
accessed using /home/groupname. user_agentd(8) copies the contents of
the Sun386i's default group, /home/users, into the home directory of
the new group. This includes the Welcome.txt file, the copy_home
script, and the defaults directory . copy_home can be modified to cus-
tomize the default setup environment for new users in the group.
