I have a Fedora 34 workstation that has been upgraded via their tools for years and finally going to blow it up and do a fresh install of Fedora 36.

Any tips on how to configure the workstation to automatically join the Clear OS server? So far it has been a patch job of manually mapping network drives and other resources. I would love to see Clear OS continue and also to get the networking aspect better integrated.

Clear OS just keeps chugging along and as a sign of a good network server you sometimes forget that it is there.

    Fortunately I kept my VM from when I made the HowTo for a customer. I presume the Centos8 installation came with oddjob-mkhomedir installed as my bash history does not show me installing it and the dnf.rpm.log shows it installed with lots of other stuff, so I presume when I installed Centos8. The same goes for authselect.

    Can you check your line breaks. It looks like you are running two lines together. It should be:
    systemctl enable oddjobd --now
    followed by:
    authselect select winbind with-mkhomedir

    Thanks for the HowTo..... I think it is missing a package to install though. I had to install oddjob as following the instructions when I hit this command on the workstation
    sudo systemctl enable oddjobd --now authselect select winbind with-mkhomedir
    Failed to enable unit: Unit file oddjobd.service does not exist.
    I was blocked. Installing oddjob on the workstation resolved that.

    Currently stuck on
    $ sudo systemctl enable oddjobd --now authselect select winbind with-mkhomedir
    Failed to enable unit: Unit file authselect.service does not exist.
