Prevent mapping of %homepath% on terminal server

Posted on 2009-02-12

I support an organization with multiple locations, each location has it's own set of servers for file shares, printing etc.  The only exception is we have a group of shared servers for some business software located at a remote office.

When the user logs in to the Terminal Server their home path is mapped and pointed back to their location file share.

Is there a way to prevent the Home path from mapping at the terminal server level? Ideally I don't want to remove the home path entry from the AD User Object.

    Assisted Solution

    you could just create a login script to remove the entry.
    or reset the %homepath% location using the set command.

    Or am I off track?

    Not exactly a scripting wiz here,

    Can you show me an example of how I could go about removing the entries?
