I’ve taken over managing this data center and new to managing some of these things, but, I’ll try to explain what I’m doing, that may help provide a solution. I’m a school, I have lots of users, Teachers, Admin, Students…
Also, I have a Home Server with a Sans with Home Folders.
I go into AD, find an existing Teacher, copy the user to create a new one. But, the new home folder is not keeping the same permissions from the copied user. We have many different permissions depending on the user, so its a pain to reset every new users home folder security.
I have also tried using Javelina AD toolkit for creating the user, but it can’t set the home folder permissions either. It has some error when it tries.
Maybe a policy is in effect causing this and i’m not aware of it?
ANY suggestions how to do this better or solve this would be greatly appreciated.
