I have a simple vbscript that creates a folder called "home" locally on my PC. I want to modify the script so it can be used to create a home directory for ANY user on a file server, give the user(modify) rights to their home directory. This script will give the directory the users login name. I want the script to be able to run from any pc within my office, as long as the user running the script has the rights to do it.

I have a Windows 2003 AD domain, the PC's and Servers are all Win2kPro, WinXP, Win2k Server and Win2k3 servers...

ParentFolder = "C:\"
set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace(ParentFolder)
objFolder.NewFolder "home"

Hey there,

To create a folder with the users username, use the following:

Set objNet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objFSO.CreateFolder("\\Yournetwork\Drive\" & objNet.UserName)
Set objFSO = Nothing
Set objNet = Nothing

To set the permissions of the folder, check this thread:

Hope that helps,
