Bulk users and home folders - best practice?
I am setting up a new server 2008 r2 with windows 7 clients and I'm looking for a bit of advice on how best to bulk add students and teachers and assign them their home folders.
This is my first time setting up a 2008 r2 server and I'm getting a bit confused.
I have set up a shared folder d:\work$ and within this I have subfolders for students and staff which is then divided again into year groups e.g. d:\work$\students\2011\
I want to create the 200 users in ad, create a folder for each of them under 2011 folder, set up folder redirection and roaming profiles.
What is the best way to go about this? Should I be scripting everything, the adding users, creating folders and setting rights to the folders? or should I just be using a script to add the users to AD and using gpo to do everything else?
