    User migration and shares

    Bit of an oversight this one!

    User migration. Reasonable simple with ADMT, we can bring over usernames and passwords without a problem. However naturally we need to strip any references to profiles (moving to mandatory) and homedrive will be pointing in the wrong place.
    Homedrive will need to point to a DFS namespace share which is easy enough, that can be set on each user to \\domain.internal\users\%username%

    Not a problem - but the oversight is, how on earth do I create shares for 1500 users? Is there some handy scripts somewhere?

    is this of any use ?

    Automatic creation of user folders for home, roaming profile and redirected folders. - Ask the Directory Services Team - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

    or are you specifically looking for a script and are using a different method of creating the root home folder location ?

    Found that one, but unfortunately not quite what I need.

    When the users are migrated from the other server it will include an existing folder structure with existing files - hence the problem
    .
