I have a Windows 2003 Server/AD/Exchange 2003 Server Network and I have attempted to set up users home folder for storing user profiles and a user personal folder for "my documents" items redirection and limited storage.  I also need guidance on how to set rights/permissions so that a user will only get/view his own folders and no one else.  Below is my current "non-working" setup:

(1)  User Home Folder
\\ServerName\Users$\Home\%username%

(2) User Personal Folder - Connect as P: Drive
\\ServerName\Users$\Personal\%username%

(3) Also I need the perfered way to redirect "my document" items to a folder within the personal folder.

At my first attempt, when a user tried to login they were logged in with a temporary profile.  I think this could be a rights issue. Please help!

Take a look at this from the MS website:

I believe it will have answers to your questions and should help you get it setup correctly.
