    Ubuntu 20.10 doesn't add home directory for Enterprise Active Directory Accounts

    installed Ubuntu 20.10 on a Raspberry Pi 4. After logging in with the user account I created during installation, I added an Enterprise user for Active Directory.

    I am able to log in with my Active Directory credentials. Unfortunately, a home account is not created for this user. As a result, programs such as firefox, chromium, etc, do not run properly.


    Is a home directory supposed to be created for enterprise users? How can I correct this?

    ----------------------

    I found the solution to the problem. You have to run
    Code:
    pam-auth-update
    and tick the option "Create home directory on login"

    This will create a new user directory for each active directory user that logs in. Things will function normally after that such as firefox starting. I will have to submit a bug report about this.
