The Home drive field value is not displayed when first viewing the Profile properties of a user account in the Web Console.


The Web Console does not display assigned home drive letters when first viewing a user account's properties.  Updating this property to a different drive letter in the Web Console and then saving it causes the drive letter to be displayed for that user account and does so from that point on.  The Home drive letter fails to show for all user accounts for whom this has never been changed using the Web Console.

The MMC displays the correct drive letter by default.

This issue occurs because the select list for the Home drive value does not include the colon (:)needed to indicate a drive letter.  Because Windows adds a colon when a drive letter is specified, the result is that the value in the list does not match exactly the value in Active Directory.


Hotfix 26323 corrects this situation, causing DRA to display the Home drive letter the first time the account's properties are viewed in the Web Console.
