novell Roaming Profile Folder security question
Posted on 2007-03-19
We are implimenting Novell here on Windows XP workstations, and I am going to utilize the roaming profiles component for backup purposes, and instructors that like to log in in classrooms and have all their files accessible (even desktop shortcuts)
Now, my initial thought was to create a profiles directory that is separate from the user's Home Drive, as to alieviate any potential wandering by users exploring their Home Drive.
So I have the folder created and designated for Roaming profile storage, but my question is what kind of permissions is needed? On the /PROFILES folder should I make all users have File Scan? Then under that you will have all the USERNAME folders, and each user should have trustee to that folder, correct? Is there some automated way that those will be created, or each time a user's profile directory is created and populated am I going to have to apply trustee rights to it manually?
Or am I looking at too much babysitting of the security on these folders, and its just way easier to dump the profile to the Users's Home Drive?
