Problems creating Home Folders - W2003Server.

  1. Hi,

    apparently there's a problem in Windows 2003 Server setting up Home Folders properly. See the following old link:

    Trouble With Windows Server 2003 Home Folders
    http://x220.win2ktest.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6136

    I'm running Win2003Server-Standard SP1 and the reported problem still shows up on me.

    Do you know whether SP2 includes a fix to the problem ?

    or

    do you know of any other step-by-step guideline to set up Home Folders properly ?

    My requirements for proper Home Folders are (pretty obvious but worth stating):

    - only the authenticated user should have RWX access to their Home Folder;
    - any other user, except Administrator, should be unaware of the before-mentioned Home Folder, i.e. no Traversing nor RWX access;
    - the Home Folders Share should not be visible to network browsers, or at best, have Read-Only access to the root of the folder but not inside the User's Home Folders.

    Any feedback regarding this problem would be appreciated.

    Thnx

    Follow the guideline in this link :

    How to Dynamically...

    and then create the Home Folders.

    p.s. these are the security settings that worked for me for the home folder.
