home folders to large number of users

Environ: Windows Server 2003 Domain, Windows XP boxes.  

I have 6 OU's of users, approx 50 users in each OU.  I want to give a home folder (an H: drive) to all of them.

How can I do this without having to go to each user in AD and pasting the selection in there?

Thanks

Cliff

In AD users and computers, you can select multiple users at once and set the home folder for all of them. You will need to use an environment variable to ensure they all get a different home folder:

e.g.

 Multiple user properties dialogue box in Win 2003

You may use GPMC to implement a group policy on these OUs or create a domain login script to map the network drive as a home directory.

In GPMC click the OU right click the GPO then under computer config expand to windows settings you should see scripts(startup/shutdown) this is where you will add the .bat file make sure to enforce the GPO for it to work.
