Home Drive+Home Directory RRS feed

  • Question

  • When i try to use orchestrator to create a home drive and store it in a directory, the information gets populated in AD but for some reason the drive never gets created. The Drive never shows up in the shared directory, or for the user.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    I Think that on the Create User Activity only store it as a setting, a path. You need to create the folder "manually" first. But manually is of course also Orchestrator as Stefan is saying.

  • C-D3,

    we know that with dsa.msc the drive automatically gets created. But with the up-to-date version of the AD IP in fact not. But no problem, just two Activies more: "Create Folder" and "Run Program" with calcs.

  • Hello,

    I experience the same behavior in the Active Directory Integration Pack for System Center 2012 Orchestrator Version 7.0: The home drive is set but the directory isn't created by this setting. So, I use the "Create Folder" Activity and the "Run Program" Activity (running "cacls") after the "Create User" Activity.

    Regards,
