  • Shared directory mask

    We use the users First Name and Last Name (john.doe) as folder name, but share the folder as first initial last name (jdoe$). I am trying to create a template to do this, and creating the share jdoe$ with the mask %username%$ is easy, but trying to create the folder john.doe is difficult. I have used %first name%.%last name%, and also %givenname%.%sn%, but it creates the fold as exactly that. Help....

    Re: Shared directory mask

    The only variable that you have available is %username%.

    One thought would be to use the post-user batch file method and see you can figure out how to parse the username the way you want.

    The help file has information on using a post-user batch file to get you started.
