So I moved user's home directories to a new server. Sounds simple enough, right? The user directories are sitting on the new server needing permission granted to the user. I thought I would be able to select multiple users in AD, change the home directory path with the %username% wildcard and be on my way. Wrong! Errors out saying folder already created. Doesn't assign permissions. To make matters worse, I think I've fallen into this trap before. So I'm stuck doing it one by one waiting for permissions to assign to every file and folder a user has.
For future reference, is there anything I could have done differently?
