We have active directory running on server 2003.  We have the profile tab, home folder,connect radio button checked.  We have active directory map a drive letter and path to a server for a home folder location for each user. i.e. \\<server>\<path>\<user name>.

We are building a new file server, so the name in that path above, variable <server> will change from what it currently is to something new.  Can I make this change globally and leave the path and username in tact?

Thanks.

Not exactly but you can highlight multiple accounts and change the home folder location for them in one fell swoop by type \\server\path\%USERNAME%
