How does Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) use the allowable parent paths information I specify when I configure home directory policies?
Why should I specify allowable parent paths when enabling home directory policies in DRA?
Directory and Resource Administrator 7.5
The Allowable parent paths field on the Home directory tab on the Home Share/Directory Policies window in the Delegation and Configuration console lists the allowable parent directories or paths for home shares on file servers. DRA uses the information entered in the Allowable parent paths field to ensure DRA:
- Does not delete the parent directory on the file server when Assistant Admins delete a user account and the user account home directory
- Moves the home directory to a valid parent directory or path on the file server when you rename a user account or change the home directory path for a user account
If you have not enabled home directory policies in DRA, you do not need to specify allowable parent paths.
