Hi,

I need help with creating AD accounts from templates. I already created some AD user templates and used the %username% variable in the profile path field and for the HOME directory path. For the HOME field, it works, but the variable does not work with the profile path. What can I do?

When i copy the template, it does not use the username of the newly created account.

Thank you in advance!

In theory it should work, the question here is, What's your AD level and what is the client OS?

Thanks
