    Bulk user home folders

    Right, created users. Used BAT file to create folders.

    Now, what can i do to point the account to the folder? Isnt there something i can put at the end of \\curricsvr1\users\$homefolder$ or something like that? Almost like a wildcard?

    When i right click and look at the security its picked up the correct users etc, just need to point the home folder but for a batch of them!

    Select accounts together in AD > Right-click > Properties > Profile Tab > Tick "Home Folder" checkbox > Connect $driveletter to \\curricsvr1\users$\%username%

    Hit Apply/OK

    FYI: This will create all the user folders for you and set all correct permissions - skipping the BAT file step

    Ah ok! I did think that was the case.

    Seriously been a long time since i did a bulk one, the fire knocked me back at least a year so im fighting to catch up. I've rushed this hence the stoopid mistakes!
