Hi,

What are users and permissions required for a home folder? I trying to create a folder name home on windows 2003 server in which users create their personal foder in their username when they logging in to the server. I have already given the follwoing permissions

Domain adminitrator (Full control)
System (Full control)
Creator Ower (Full control) but when I give full control and apply the change, the permissions turns to Special Permissions
Authenticated users (Full control ) but the I am not able to do that. (same as above)

Please help me to solve the problem.

Thanks

Hi teomcam,

I tried but ended up with following error when applying the home folder at "connet to" in the profie path.

\\home\home$\%username%

The home folder could not created because: Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable,  or access been denied.

Here I dont want other users to access folders each other.

Thanks

Looks like your server not able to communicate with DC. Can you try to navigate and create a user manually in home folder please?
With the way that I have described no one can see each others folder.

\\home\home$\%username%
Is that \\home\ your server name?
