A new Homedir
Hi All, I hope someone can help
I'm looking to move a number of users from one server to another. At the moment they pick up their homedirectory (to which their my documents point to) from the Active Directory field for map a home drive. Simple enough!
Unfortunately when I change that I need to wipe/reset their profile for it to pick up the changes - otherwise their 'N' drive still points to the old location. I'd rather not have to wipe all their profiles - does anyone know a way to force an update?
have you tried removing all shared drives in a log on script? but it does sound like you need to run gpupdate/force
@peterpan home drives are not mapped by group policy.
It should work. I changed ours recently and didnt need to do anything special.
can you not use "net use /Delete"
Sorry to drag this up but it was a classic 'duuur' moment for me. I wasn't being patient enough and the change hadn't replicated to our other DC's yet.... so all working as intended, just give it a minute before you login
If you've not done so yet, now is a good time to setup DFS
Distributed File System
I am currently copying the student drives to a different server, and once it's done I'll just update the server target in DFS. The path stays the same to the end user, no need to update it in AD.
