Manual page for 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 perform 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 directory. 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 customize the default setup environment for new users in the group.
