How to create NT user home drive

How to create NT user home drive

Question:
I set the usri3_home_dir and home_dir_drive when I create an NT account using VB code. I also need to create the home directory on a specified NT server. Any ideas?

Answer:
Assuming you have rights to do so on the server in question, you can simply:

 MkDir "\lj_serverc$users"   MkDir "\lj_serverc$usersabc"This will create a directory "abc" under the C:users directory on the server.  After successfully creating the directory, then you can set the usri3_home_dir to this directory you just created.
