Migrated Users losing rights to Home Directories.

Hi Experts
I have recently migrated an old netware 3.x server to Netware 6.5 SP2 server.The user information, passwords etc. along with all the netware volumes are migrated successfully.
The only problem remaining now is that the users do not have effective rights to their home directories.The Home directories are there and i can see that a user's homedirectory is defined properly in C1.( I used a template object during migration to set the user's home directories.)
Is there a easier way to give all users the rights to their home directories.
Thanks in advance

Geez, that's what the template was supposed to do for you.  That bites.

The blurb for the cool tool called homesplus includes this: "For Home Directories: You can select to create the NDS home attribute or the home directory itself (or both), and you can set the directory attributes, trustee rights, volume-space restrictions, directory quotas or ownership for all files in a home directory (especially useful after a migration)."

You can get it at  http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/1746.html  If you try it, let us know.

You might want to check the other tools available on coolsolutions - I might have skipped over one that might fit the need better.

This one is by the same author: http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/1568.html and looks like it would do the trick, too.  It's free, besides.  The other one is shareware.
