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

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

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?
