Hi all,

I'm setting up a test Magic Triangle between a 10.8.4 Mac Pro Server running OS X Server v2.2.2 and an AD domain running Windows 2008 R2 Standard. There's 2 macbook which will become this Magic Triangle clients, it will use OD for managed preferences using Profile Manager and AD for user authentication.

Now we are looking into using the OS X Server as a file server for AD Users, the requirement is to create user level shares on the server HDD which only that AD user have access.

The challenge: Is there a way to mass create 100 AD User shares and assign permission to one user per share?

I looked into the File Sharing in Server app, but it doesn't offer a quick way to create all the shares and assign the permission for specific user at the same time.

Workgroup Manager seems to be able to provide this function by enable Mobile account on the Macbooks and force the profile to be stored on the server side rather than locally. Found similar article here https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4081149 but anyone know if we can apply this setting using Profile Manager?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
