Using variables in Home drive path in AD - group policy
Posted on 2015-02-06
Running server 2008 R2 domain. Need to do:
1) Hide the home drive paths from the user sessions. Example At the moment all users get the H:\\server\AllStudents\grade1\Jmisha mapped. How/where I can make changes in GPO to have users only see 'H:' instead of the full server path.
2) In the Ad user properties, profile tab, home folder I simply put \\server\AllStudents\grade1\%username% and the home folder with appropriate permissions is made under 'Each Grade'. Keeping in mind that the number after the 'grade' changes for each user in different grades what variable path I can put in so that the user home folders are successfully created for each grade. Example:
\\server\AllStudents = is a permanent path
grade(number)\%username% = is a variable path. What can I use for grade(number)?
