automatically create home folders for all AD users on a new 2003 server and then change homedrive path enmass
Posted on 2004-04-16
I am currently migrating from a mixed Netware 6.0/Active Directory (Mixed Mode) envrionment to a pure windows environment.
Currently i have been using MSDSS to reverse sync user accounts from Netware to Active Directory.
To perform a Netware to windows migration i have been attempting to use MSDSS and the File Migration Utility that comes with Windows services for netware.
Because i have already been using it to synchronise the windows server with the netware one (users only) no log file (to use for mapping with the File Migration Utility)gets created when i perform a migration because to users already exist. (i think its because the users already exist)
What i want to achieve is
1. create home directories on a new server for all active directory users
2. automatically change the home directory path for all users to point to their new folders on the new server (if this can be done in a way that includes step 1 it would pose the ideal solution as the directories would all have the correct permissions as though they were created individually)
3. copy their existing data from the Netware server to the Win2003 server
If anyone can help i would be grateful.
