likewise registry changes

There are two ways to edit home directory and shell in Likewise:

1.  lwconfig
2.  lwregshell

and no, hacking the xml files do not work.


command line joy.  fun.  sadly, sometimes it has null and cache issues.

/opt/likewise/bin/lwconfig --detail AssumeDefaultDomain
/opt/likewise/bin/lwconfig AssumeDefaultDomain true
/opt/likewise/bin/lwconfig --show AssumeDefaultDomain 
/opt/likewise/bin/lwconfig LoginShellTemplate /bin/bash
/opt/likewise/bin/lwconfig HomeDirPrefix /home
/opt/likewise/bin/lwconfig HomeDirTemplate %H/%U
/opt/likewise/bin/lwconfig CreateHomeDir false
echo 'MYDOMAINS\\domain^admins ALL=(ALL) ALL' >> /etc/sudoers
restart the Likewise services"
/opt/likewise/bin/lwsm restart lwio

the registry editing tool.

In the lsass branch, there are two keys that contain entries for the 
home directory and shell. One is for the Active Directory provider, the other is for
the Local provider. 

to get to the locations:
cd HKEY_THIS_MACHINE\Services\lsass\Parameters\Providers\ActiveDirectory
set_value LoginShellTemplate /bin/bash
set_value HomeDirTemplate %H/%U
cd HKEY_THIS_MACHINE\Services\lsass\Parameters\Providers\Local
set_value LoginShellTemplate /bin/bash
set_value HomeDirTemplate %H/%U

Refresh configuration without agent restart (unlike with lwconfig):
