Re: [K12OSN] regfile for redirect of My Documents



This is part of a conversation that Chuck and I were having off-list....I
thought you might want to see it.  I use Samba/LDAP...thus all my users
have profiles and home directories in one server....my goal is to redirect
My Documents to the users /home folder thus enabling stuff to be saved
instantly rather than waiting until logoff.  Here's what I've found and
tried....

Check this out

  I can see how I can do this....using Samba/LDAP all my users have a home
directory....this lives at /home/username.....the profiles, however, live
at /opt/samba/profiles/username....  I do, however, map the users home
directory (when logged into Windows) with a login script that looks like
this....

REM To set the time when the clients logon to the domain:
net time \\10.0.0.234 /set /yes
REM
REM To map a home directory to drive f:
net use f: /home

thus....if the suggestion on this page works...I can simply make a
registry change and point "My Documents" to the users /home folder or a
folder within that /home by pointing it simply to drive F:   (I hope)

Are you guys using Windows XP Pro?  That's all I have in my building (and
2003 Terminal Server which works the same way)....I tried this method
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;310147  while
logged into my Windows Terminal Server from home....it works great!  I can
simply instruct all my users to make the change or...I can create the
"default profile" or mandatory profile with this change....My Documents
pointed to F:   So when my users first log in at the start of the school
year...their profile will be initially based on the "default" profile I
create and thus it will have all the changes.
