The module invokes the mkhomedirfor method of the com.redhat.oddjob service for the PAM_USER if the module is running with superuser privileges. Otherwise, it invokes the mkmyhomedir method.

The location of the skeleton directory and the default umask are determined by the configuration for the corresponding service in oddjobd.conf, so they can not be specified as arguments to this module.

If D-Bus has not been configured to allow the calling application to invoke these methods provided as part of the com.redhat.oddjob interface of the /com/redhat/oddjob object provided by the com.redhat.oddjob service, then oddjobd will not receive the request and an error will be returned by D-Bus.

If oddjobd has not been configured to provide these methods, or the user is not authorized to use them, then oddjobd will ignore the module’s requests.
