Weird directory issue on Win2k3 server home directories
Posted on 2011-03-11
I have a windows 2003 Active Directory domain. Each user has an individual home directory, individually shared. We recently created a new user and created a new directory for them. For some reason, that user is linked to an existing user. If I change the name of their directory, it changes the name of the other users directory. If I change it back, it changes the other users directory as well. I have tried simply cutting the files out of the directory and pasting them into a new directory and than pointing the home directory to that and that seemed to work, but, now, the next day, I have three directories with the same name; changing one, changes them all. The share names do not change, the permissions do not change, but I am at a loss as to why this is happening. I've never seen anything like it on windows. Particularly since I created an entirely new directory and the problem migrated to this directory (I had thought perhaps the problem had something to do with a linked directory issue but with a new directory, if there had been a link, that should have been eliminated).
