Change / Set Homedrive path in AD
Posted on 2014-09-02
We want to change the Homedrive path location in AD.
At the moment the path is
for $employeetype A
for $employeetype B
We ant to change it to a single namespace with different paths for each employee type
I am hoping it would be something as simple as filtering users in AD based on employee type and setting their homedrive letter and path accordingly.
So this way we only have two main shares, which already exist, as opposed to hundreds of user shares. We will be using the same paths for folder redirection, by the way (which begs the question, why do we need to set a home drive in ad at all, if the path is being created as part of folder redirection group policy anyway - cant we just map the letter via GPO to the folder redirection path and not bother with the ad home drive setting?)
