    User Areas - Shares!?!

    Does anyone know how I can setup lots of user area shares quickly?


    For instance

    Jo Bloggs - Year 7


    \\datastorageserver\user data$\year 7\06j-bloggs

    would be her user area UNC path to say the N drive.

    Is there a way of bulk creating user UNCs I.E.

    \\datastorageserver\06j-bloggs$

    This is so that our Linux File System can know by default where the user areas are on that server? It gets complicated if you need to specify \\server\share\year folder\user name folder\

    mkdir in a batch file to create the folder i.e

    mkdir d:\user data\year 7\username

    Run on the server that you are creating them on then

    net share username$=d:\user data\year 7\username /grant:everyone,f

    I use excel to take a list of usernames in one column then in the next create the commands to make the directories then past it into a batch file.

    So you'd have

    mkdir d:\user data\year 7\06j-bloggs
    net share 06j-bloggs$=d:\user data\year 7\06j-bloggs /grant:everyone,f

    Well thankfully I've created all the user home directories. So I just use netshare on the server to set them up permanently?

    @Wes
    Don't forget to tie down the file permissions on each area using CACLS or SetACL.
