Home Folders in Server 2012

I am having troubles with the home folder creation on windows server 2012. This is my first use of server 2012 but I have created a share Called Users and gave the authenticated users group read-change permission Then in the security tab I gave the read and write access. Just as I did in server 2008 r2. Now when I create a using in AD 2012 I select under the profile options to map U as the drive and the folder location \\servername\Users\%username% . When I do this no user folder gets created as it did in server 2008 r2. Also when I login using the user nothing gets created either. But if I manually create the folder and set permissions I can map it just fine. I am missing something here. Thanks

I found the answer. In server 2012 they have this interface that launches on start and you can get to the directory admin area but this tool is broken, not all functions work in this interface. You must go to the good old ad users and computers tool to add your users and it creates the users folders just fine. To many damn wizards..

For your share build script..  Are you using CACLS/ICACLS to apply perms?

I would suspect that is where the problem is..

HTH,

I am not using any script. In server 2008 r2 when I create a user it creates a folder when I supply the \\servername\Users\%username% option in the home folder area and then when I login as that user is automatically maps u drive to the home folder specified in AD. Does this not work the same in server 2012.
