Add multiple PSTs using Profgen.exe and NewProf.exe
Posted on 2005-02-23
We have recently ditched roaming profiles for our users as they cause more problems than they solve. Consequently, if anyone does move desk, we have to recreate their mail profile (among other things).
I'm writing a vbscript based solution that will create the mail profile for each user as they log in. Creating a brand new default profile is simple using Profgen and Newprof. However, most of our users have more than one personal folder. Therefore, what I would like to do is enumerate all PSTs in their home folder, and then create the mail profile adding in all the PSTs.
Does anyone know if this is possible with Profgen and Newprof? I realise that I will probably need to dynamically modify the Outlook.prf file, and i'm completely Ok with that, unfortunately, I don't know if it's possible to create profiles with multiple PSTs, and if it is, I don't know what the syntax should be.
If I can crack this, I will post the finished scripts here for other peoples benefit.
