My company is moving from roaming home folders and profiles to local accounts to improve performance. I'm trying to use Active Directory to set the Home directory for users to a folder located on the D:\ partition. I have tried entering D:\%username% for the home directory local path for my test user, but when I log in as the test user no D:\testuser\ folder is created and the users home directory is pointed to C:\Users\testuser.
Am I missing something here? Does entering a local path not work because AD is trying to create the directory immediately as if it were a network share?
How do I get the user's home folder to create itself on the D:\ partition of their local machine?
