Issue creating home folders using a vbscript

we have a vbscript at the moment that will create an account in AD, which it will then add the account to a number of groups and then create a home folder on a server  share and set the permissions.  All of this seems to be working fine ,but...

A number of times although it is creating the homefolder and looks as if it is adding the correct permissions for the user.  However if you try and save any work it comes up with an accessed denied error.  If we then  reapply the permissions it seems to work.

We are using CALCS to do this should we be using XCALCS long term I would like to use powershell but is that possible?

You could certainly try XCacls.vbs
Here's how I'd use it:

sHomeDir = "\\server\users\jsmith"
sUser = "domain\jsmith"
strCommand = "%COMSPEC% /c cscript.exe %systemroot%\System32\xcacls.vbs " & sHomeDir & " /E /T /G " & sUser & ":F"
objShell.Run strCommand, 1, True

Open in new window

Rob.
