Gets or sets the local file system path to the user’s default home directory.


string DefaultHomeDirectory {get; set;}

Property value

The text string that defines the default path to the user’s home directory.


The only variable permitted is ${user}. The Access Manager console replaces this variable with the user’s UNIX login name when you add a UNIX profile for the user to the zone.


The following code sample illustrates using DefaultHomeDirectory in a script:

'Specify the zone you want to work with
set objZone = cims.GetZone(" Data/Acme/Zones/default")
'Set zone properties
objZone.DefaultHomeDirectory = "/home/${user}"
objZone.DefaultShell = "/bin/bash"
objZone.NextAvailableUID = zone.NextAvailableUID + 1
objZone.NextAvailableGID = zone.NextAvailableGID + 1
objZone.DefaultHomeDirectory = "/home/${user}"
