Active Directory Mapped Network Drive User Storage
Posted on 2010-01-04
Question 1: OK so i set up Active Directory on a Windows 2003 Server with no issue however, i want to have multiple network drives linked to a user's account. As of right now i have one drive mapped when a user logs on to the PC. Pretty much the goal is to have these mapped drives follow the user at any pc they log into. I noticed you are only able to map one drive to a user in the user setup section ... How do i add multiple drives?
Question 2: I want each user to have a personal mapped drive for storage that is limited to 10 gigs that they only have access to. So far what i did was created a folder titled User Storage folder on the servers C: drive and shared that. Then i created sub folders in that directory with the users name. However im having security issues on it. I set the Main folder User Storage Folder to be accessed by the users group as a read only and then on the users personal folder i gave full control to their specfic folder. My goal was to have all the users in the users group be able to see all the users folders on the network however only have access to their particular folder. So if John Smith tried adding Mike Jones folder it wouldnt give him access. I was able to accomplish this but once the folder is mapped to that user they cant add or delete anything from their folder.So the real question i guess here is how do i fix the security issue and number 2 how do i limit their personal folder to only use 10 gigs of storage?
