    ...Which reminds me:

    I have yet to test, but does Hyena actually *create* the directories and shares? If so, can it create a resource which appends name info *following* the %username% variable.

    IOW:
    Can it create \\servername\%username%_home

    ???

    Thanx agin!

    Those are necessary if the TSE Home Directory is going to be a share instead of a directory.

    So, if you are just creating a directory for them to attach to, then you put a New Home Directory Mask of:

    \\server\tsprofiles\%username%

    With nothing in the two Share Directory fields.

    If you are creating a share, then you'll setup your New Home Directory Mask as:

    \\server\%username%

    And fill in the other two like the help instructions on it.

    Hmmmm, I must admit that I am not THAT confused. I know how to GET there! I just have issues with the terminology. However vague, your reply did ignite a spark in that it sounds like the two template types relate to the home and profile options for each type (normal or TS). BBBLLLIINNNGGG!!!

    PS: If 'Home Directory' can be 'Term Svs Home Directory' and 'Profile Path' can be 'Term Svs Profile Path' then what can 'Share Directory ??? Mask' be when using a template as a Term Svs template?

    Thanx!!!

    You'll create a Home Directory Template and the settings you enter will be used for the Terminal Server Home Directory. You can set permissions on the template as well. When you go to Tools->Settings->Home Dir you'll see a drop-down that allows you to choose which template you want Hyena to use by default for Terminal Server Profiles.

    I am afraid that all the Hyena TERMinology has me flipped upside down. Here is what I currently do and want Hyena to do:

    To create ALL user accounts (TS and normal) I currently run a batch on my workstation which:

    1) adds the new user account to the domain then creates a batch on my file server (read on)

    2)I run the batch created in step 1 which
    a)creates a folder which is secured and shared (to this a drive is mapped at login for the user to store private data 'THIS IS NOT A HOME DIRECTORY')
    b)creates two other folders which are secured and shared to be used for the users term home and term profile folders

    I then login to the file server and execute the batch to create the folders and shares. Then I login to the terminal server (gotta love the proprietary user mangler for TS) and assign the folders created in 2b to term profile and term home dirs. While in there I assign the user to any groups they need. Thats it!!!

    Sounds easy huh? Actually it is not, I use NET xxx and CACLS xxx to do all of this. Because of NT rules and such I have to be physically logged onto the server where the folders are created to assifg authorities. Real Pain eh?!?

    Hyenas Templates and batch functionality sounds cool but I am at a loss as to just how to apply them. I do not use home directory for the main account but do for TS. The hyena templates are confusing as they allow separate templates for TS and normal accounts but I don't see anywhere a place to create a TS home or profile directories in the template config. Also, can I get around the cacls issue of having to login to the server on which I want to assign authority to folders or is this (still) and issue?

    Thanx in advance!!!

    FYI: NT4.0 Domain, TS 4.0, MF 1.8 (yea I'm a dinosaur)
