I have a Windows 2003 Server  with IIS and FTP.  My plan is to move the company website and FTP from a hosted enviorment to a company domain. My question is if I need to have a shared FTP root that needs 50+ user directories for 50+ users to upload ftp; I already created the 50 users is active directory. They are outside clients that need to upload ftp. What is the fasted and best way to give them access to there own
FTPROOT\Client\<username> directory only, with AD. Do I need to map drive with a login script ? Do I have to go to each directory and assign directory and file access permission. I need some ideas to speed things up ? Can the FTProot\Root\username be a home directory ?

I spent 4 hours today setting this up fir 52 clients and when I try to access  the ftp ://<>/user name
with the active directory user and password it does not login. Am I supposed to set this up in user isolation active directory mode, I did not see this in the documentation. I may need to start all over again.

I found out that IE7 has a fault where you the Vista Capabilities shows Windows 2003 Server II FTP Directories even if they are user isolated. MS owes me an apology not having a fix yet.
