We are in the process of migrating away from AD to edirectory running SLES 10 OES 2.

All workstations will be running XP with Novell Client 4.91 SP5 for Windows.

Is there away to setup edirectory user accounts to auto create there Nt workstation profile at log in? I would like to have everyone use there own profile on the workstations, but not worry about setting up every users personal local account every time they logon to a new system.

Thanks Alextoft!

I was hoping I could avoid that, but might as well test it.

Cheers
