I want to be able to create users home directories on a sever from an application.

Given the username the app should create the home folder using the username as the folder name.the folder should have the following perms

1)administrators-FC
2) username-FC
3) folder should not inherit perms from parent folder

Hi,

For creating the directory use ForceDirectories function from FileCtrl unit.

For sharing it and giving premissions you'll need NetShareAdd and NetShareSetInfo API functions. Look at this question:

found solution.

 it requires  Win32 headers from www.delphi-jedi.org

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
    securityAttr:TSecurityAttributes;
    lpsecuritydesc:JwaWinNT.PSecurityDescriptor; // PSecurityDescriptor is also defined in windows.pas
    ea:array[0..1] of TExplicitAccessW;
    easize:integer;
    pacl:JwaWinNT.PACL;// PACL is also defined in windows.pas

begin

ea[0].grfAccessPermissions:= STANDARD_RIGHTS_ALL or SPECIFIC_RIGHTS_ALL;
ea[0].grfAccessMode:=SET_ACCESS;
ea[0].grfInheritance:=SUB_CONTAINERS_AND_OBJECTS_INHERIT;
ea[0].Trustee.TrusteeForm:=TRUSTEE_IS_NAME;
ea[0].Trustee.TrusteeType:=TRUSTEE_IS_USER;
ea[0].Trustee.ptstrName:='mark-wks\markm';

ea[1].grfAccessPermissions:= STANDARD_RIGHTS_ALL or SPECIFIC_RIGHTS_ALL;
ea[1].grfAccessMode:=SET_ACCESS;
ea[1].grfInheritance:=SUB_CONTAINERS_AND_OBJECTS_INHERIT;
ea[1].Trustee.TrusteeForm:=TRUSTEE_IS_NAME;
ea[1].Trustee.TrusteeType:=TRUSTEE_IS_GROUP;
ea[1].Trustee.ptstrName:='Administrators';

SetEntriesinAclW(2,@ea,nil,pacl);

lpsecuritydesc:= Allocmem(sizeof(SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR_MIN_LENGTH));
InitializeSecurityDescriptor(lpsecuritydesc,SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR_REVISION);
SetSecurityDescriptorDacl(lpsecuritydesc,true,pacl,false);

FillChar(securityattr,sizeof(SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES),#0);
securityattr.nLength:=sizeof(SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES);
securityattr.lpSecurityDescriptor:=lpsecuritydesc;
securityattr.bInheritHandle:=false;

if createdirectory('\\mark-wks\home\markm',@securityattr) then
 showmessage('folder created')
else showmessage('error creating folder');

hope it helps someone
