Create a VB Script

Hi

I am the administrator for a school and they have asked me to redo the whole system over this weekend.
I would like to streamline a few things that never use to be in place.
I’m looking for a vb script that I can enforce via group policy to do the following for me.
I only need to create the user in AD and when the user logs in for the first time the script must do the following.

Assign him to a certain group (Student) and create a personal folder for him on the D(Data) drive in the Student folder to which only him and the administrator has access.

I would also like to set up roaming profiles for the students – so any help there would also be great.

We are running Windows SBS 2003

Thanks a lot

When you add a user you are offered Standard - Power - Administrator - Mobile, iirc.  You can modify any of these, or create a new one based on the existing.  Do NOT modify, create a new one.  if it does not do what you want you can start over fresh.

Suggest you get one of the several books on administering SBS... it will  make your live easier.  Several are written by SBS MVP's.  Charlie Russell, Eric Neal, and other.

You should be able to do what you want with user templates.  Using the standard template as a beginning point, modify it to the settings you need, and apply that template to the student users when they are added to the domain.
