Can Directory and Resource Administrator create user account home directories on different servers determined by the location of the user account?

Directory and Resource Administrator 6.x

Directory and Resource Administrator 7.x


This can be accomplished using the cloning feature within Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA).  Once the Home Directory policies have been enabled and configured, create a separate user account template for each user location.  The template account for each location will have the path for that location specified in the Home directory section of the Profile properties page.  Please refer to the examples below:

Template name:  UserTemplate01
Home directory path\\server01\<sharename>\%username%

Template name:  UserTemplate02
Home directory path\\server02\<sharename>\%username%

When cloning these accounts, it is important to note that, during the clone process, the home directory path will display the template account name.  Simply complete the clone process without making any modifications and the home directory will be created with the appropriate name.
