I have a situation where I have to consolidate all the home directories onto one server as they appear to be spread accross three. I need to know the easiest way to achieve this and is there a step-by-step guide I need to follow bearing in mind login scripts permissions that kind of thing?

You can use robocopy to move the folders and keep the security settings intact, once they are moved then is a simple matter of changing the home directories in the ADCUC and editing the login scripts (but only if they refer to the home directories).

If you have a domain you could use "folder redirection".

If you don't have a domain you can do the same manually: right click the "my documents" folder and change the target.
