Fuck ssh. It does 4 things at once and i couldn't get it to do one. I have some pi's and want a shared directory on each of them. On a server i created a user for that and mounted its home directory on a pi, it worked. I did some lockdowns (no shell, only sftp allowed, login only via keyfile), but i was still able to mount it on boot.
Now i had to migrate this setup to another server. It took me a while copying all the configuration etc. All i got for that was a error-message. I figured out the users home-directory had to be owned be root, fixed that, got another error message. Somehow scp didn't use sftp but the login shell which is /usr/sbin/nologin. That made scp (and sshfs) fail, even though it perfectly works with the other server.
I gave up and removed all the setup. I'll find another distributed filesystem for that (but not samba or nfs, those are way to complicated). Those are the setbacks that depress me.
