Apply this home folder setting when user account is created

Rule-based AutoProvisioning and Deprovisioning > Policy configuration tasks > Home Folder AutoProvisioning > Apply this home folder setting when user account is created

Upon creation of a user account, this option causes Active Roles to configure the user account in Active Directory in accord with the Connect: <drive letter> To: <network path> setting specified by this policy.

For example, with the Connect: Z: To: \\Server\Share\%username% policy setting, selecting this check box ensures that a newly created user account has the Home Drive property set to Z: and the Home Directory property set to \\Server\Share\LogonName where LogonName stands for the pre-Windows 2000 logon name of the user account.

Apply this home folder setting when user account is renamed

Rule-based AutoProvisioning and Deprovisioning > Policy configuration tasks > Home Folder AutoProvisioning > Apply this home folder setting when user account is renamed

Upon renaming a user account, this option causes Active Roles to configure the user account in Active Directory in accord with the Connect: <drive letter> To: <network path> setting specified by this policy.

For example, with the Connect: Z: To: \\Server\Share\%username% policy setting, renaming a user account causes the policy to set the Home Directory property to \\Server\Share\NewLogonName where NewLogonName stands for the pre-Windows 2000 logon name that is assigned to the user account by the rename operation.

Create or rename home folder on file server as needed

When selected, this option directs Active Roles to attempt the creation or renaming of a (non-local) home folder on the file server when the Home Directory property is set or modified on a user account in Active Directory. The renaming of the home folder is attempted if the Home Directory property value contains the %username% notation and the changes to the user account include modification of the pre-Windows 2000 logon name of the user account. In other cases, the creation of a new home folder is attempted.

For example, with the Connect: Z: To: \\Server\Share\%username% policy setting, selecting this check box together with the option to apply the policy setting upon creation of a user account causes Active Roles to attempt the creation of the home folder for the user account. Active Roles attempts to create the holder with the following network path: \\Server\Share\LogonName where LogonName stands for the pre-Windows 2000 logon name of the user account.

Another example is setting the Home Drive and Home Directory properties on an existing user account in Active Directory: With this check box selected, Active Roles attempts to create the folder specified by the network path that is assigned to the Home Directory property.

If creation or renaming of the home folder fails on the file server, then the creation or modification of the user account fails as well. To prevent such an error condition, you could un-select this check box.

The result is that Active Roles applies the changes to the Home Drive and Home Directory properties in Active Directory without attempting an operation on the file server, which allows the use of a different tool for creating home folders on the file server.

Copy user permissions on home folder from parent folder

Upon creation or renaming of a home folder for a particular user account, this option ensures that the user account has the same rights on the home folder as it has on the folder in which the home folder resides.
