Resolution

Directory and Resource Administrator allows the modification of the following WTS fields through the CLI:

  • WTSALLOW - Updating this property grants or denies the account the ability to authenticate through a Terminal Server session.  The syntax for updating this property is as follows:

EA /domain:domain USER username update wtsallow:yes

  • WTSHOMEDIR - Updating this property specifies the Terminal Services home directory path for the user account.  The syntax for updating this property is as follows:

EA /domain:domain USER username update wtshomedir:path

  • WTSHOMEDIRDRIVE - Updating this property modifies the drive letter that the user's Terminal Services home directory path is mapped to.  The syntax for updating this property is as follows:

EA /domain:domain USER username update wtshomedirdrive:<drive>

NOTE: It is necessary to spell out yes and no. Do not use just Y or N.

Note

The Terminal Server profile path for a user account can be updated using the CLI in DRA version 8.0 and later.
