Home Single Signon for Macs and PCs
I have 4 kids and a wife and these days everyone wants to use a computer. I’m not going to buy 6 – so there’s going to have to be some sharing. Also, I can’t leave these things unsecured because I use OSX Parental Controls to manage how much time anyone can use a computer in a given day. I know it sounds really draconian. But it’s what you have to do with a big crowd.
What are my needs?
I’d like that when anyone logs in to any computer in the house, they get a consistent experience. Same user/password, access to their Documents and preferences set. Big ask you say? Well I hope not.
Home Server doesn’t have Single Signon
Paranoid Penguin is an article on setting up a single signon server in Linux. Reading through it I suddenly realize why this isn’t an out-of-the-box feature on the Linux Home Servers like Amahi which has many nice features and looks quite easy to setup.
Maybe I’ll see if I can’t talk the folks at Excito to add this to their Bubba Server.
Another Bubba 2 Fan
I found this Blog on setting up RAID on Bubba 2. Something interesting. I would like if the Bubba 2 just came with 2 drive bays in it so you have raid.
