Creating User Dir on NT 4 Server

By deangk ·
I need some help with setting up USER dir on NT 4 Server. I have a dir called Users and its shared with full control. I went into user manager for jsmith, clicked on profile and I have jsmith Home Dir connect to U: to \\Servername\Dir\User. I then went into the User Dir and created a folder for jsmith. When jsmith logons to server he sees U: drive and has access but he also has access to the other users folders. What have I done wrong

here it is

The reason why this has happened is that when u choose \\Servername\Dir\User that user was given rights to all directories under the user directory. What u have to do now is that go to the individual directories under the user directory and remove the jsmith user from the user list
All the best!!

Still Not Working

by deangk In reply to here it is

I am currently using the Logon script to allow users acess to the "USERS" directory. I can logon as jsmith, I use Explorer to connect to the "Users" Dir, not only does jsmith have access to his folder but also to mbrown, etc. Also when I go to the User Manager select jsmith under profile I just have Logon Script Name selected.

Here is my logon script

@echo off

@echo Executing Logon Script ...

@set server_name=\\Bus-Server01

@echo Welcome to server %server_name%

@echo Connecting Network Drives ...
@net use f: /delete > nul
@net use f: /home > nul
@net use g: /delete > nul
@net use g: %server_name%\Public
@net use k: /delete > nul
@net use k: %server_name%\Printers
@net use u: /delete > nul
@net use U: %server_name%\users

@echo Done
@net use
@echo Done
@echo Logon Script successfully completed

I figured it out

by deangk In reply to Creating User Dir on NT 4 ...

In the logon scrip I had
Net Use f: /home > nul
I changed it to
Net Use f: %srver_name%\users

I also made the following change in User manager

connect F: to \\servername\userdir\username

** The one thing that drove me crazy is I couldntget it to work by checking the radial button uner local path and using \\servername\userdir\%username%
