HIDDEN HOME DIRECTORY

By a31modela ·
With NT 4.0, can I create a hidden home directory for use with a template ? can I make the home path - \\servername\share\%username%$ would this make a hidden share for the home directory??

unfortunately in the testing that I have done I haven't been able to get that to work. The "$" on the end keeps the %username% from resolving.

Good Luck

I haven't tried it, but perhaps a batch file to change the rights to the directory after it is created with CALCS.exe so the user is the only one that can see it and then attrib so it is hidden.

Line \\servername\share\%username%$ won't work because $ hides share not a directory.
It should be \\servername\%username%$, but unfortunately NT will not create those directories for you. You need to share them manually or use Resource Kit Util rmtshare.exe in a batch file to do it.
