I am trying to use the home folder option on a windows 2003 domain. I want to use active directory, and a logon script to map it home. I do not want to use group policy unless absolutely necessary.
I have the active directory user profile tab set to connect to the appropriate path. I Shared out the user's folder with correct permissions.
The logon script properly maps the home directory:
NET USE U: /HOME
My next question is, how do I get the workstations to send the documents folder etc to this directory, and use it as the actual profile home folder?
It does not appear to automatically target the profile to this directory just by configuring the profile tab of the user account in active directory, although none of the guides mention having to do an additional step.
Do I actually need to go into the properties of my documents (xp), and tell it the target location?
I am thinking so, but why do none of the guides or videos mention this step. They all just tell you to go in and set the home folder connection path in active directory.
