    Changing AD home folder location to a group?

    Is there a way to change the home folder location on a whole OU in AD? before all our home folders were stored in one large folder and because of this it took a long time to open or change properties for this folder so ive now split it into seperate years of Y2000, Y2001 etc

    But having moved these i now need a quick and easy way of changing the profiles to point to there home folders again, does anyone know of a way of doing this that wont involve me sitting there clicking on each profile individually

    Cheers

    I think this only works on Server 2003 not Server 2000 but:

    In Active Directory select the users you want to change, right click, Properties, in the Profiles path put \\PathToParentFolder\%username%
