When I add a new user to a Windows 2000 PC that is the dc, using Active Directory, how can I chak on the defaults for that user.
For example the new user will have "My Documents" folder and files synchronized on the server, where are these default settings and how do you administer them.

Thanks

this is done via a GPO... you will have to apply a gpo to whatever domain or OU your user is in specifiying where his/her my documents folder will be routed to

This is a REALLY broad topic but I'll try to expain it as best i can.  GPOs are Group Policy Objects.. they are the heart of controlling users/computers in an active directory setup. OU is an Organizational Unit..these are basically groups for GPOs.  You set all of these up from a domain controller by opening up active directory users and computers... from there you rightclick on the domain or OU that you want the GPO applied to and go to properties,, then the GPO tab,, from there you create your GPO... a VERY common mistake when setting up GPOs is people forget to go to the properties putton from there and go to the security tab... make sure whichever user or group(not OU b/c OUs dont have security associated with them) has read and apply group policy rights.... in order for the GPO to be applied to a user/group.. it must be within the OU AND have these rights set up... you can tweak your GPO by going to the edit button,, as you will see,, you can tweak just about anything from here... good luck
