Mapping User Directories

By MPiechotta ·
I'm having a tough time trying to make the users' home directories on my server. The syntax used in my logon script is net use H: /home. Ideally, drive H: would, in my case map to \\SHFSNT6\d\users\MPiechotta, so my home dorectory would be the pseudo-root of the drive, but at current, it maps only to \\SFHSNT6\d. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to sahe the "users" directory? Do I need to set a share on each individual users' home directory under "users"?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In NT4.0 you can only map to the share level.

You can only map to shared directories, so if you want to map directly to the users home directory it will need to be shared.

We use hidden shares for the users home directories.

Good luck.

In user manager you can set path in your (user environment profile).

You can only map to the root of a share. If you wanted to have each user's home drive the root, then you can create a hidden share for all your users.

Windows NT will map a drive to the share level however the users home will become the default for command prompt or apps without at start in. With NT workstations you can use the SUBST command to set drive to point directly to the home. i.e. SUBSTI: H:\users\MPiechotta. I do not believe this will work for win 9X.
