Errors with user templates when creating home directories...
we have a Netware 6.5 SP2 Cluster with 4 Nodes.
We want to create users with use of a template. The user home directories
should be created on a Cluster-Volume (SAN).
We get the follwing error messages:
ConsoleOne 1.36c = unable to process request; file not found
iManager 2.02 = Error: The create user's home directory failed
The user is created but the home directory was not created.
On a non Clustered-Volume everything works fine.
This is a known bug that is being worked on, but there is no fix or ETA
for one at present. It's not even clea...Create Directory in Users Home Directory
I was wondering if there was an easy way of creating a directory and coping
a file to it in each users home directory, using the login script?
Could I just run a batch file like this:
dir F:\homedir\test\test.file 1>2> nul
if errorlevel=1 goto test
xcopy f:\test\test.file f:\homedir\test
Or is there an easier way?

ZEN for Desktops... But you can do it with a batch file.

Is it possible to set the user template to not create a home directory?
It appears to be hard coded on the template, which makes sense, but
would be nice to have the option.
I know that I have an option to manually uncheck the option to create a
home directory when creating the account, but would rather have the
option to set that on the template itself and not have to depend on the
creator to remember to uncheck.
I expect a no, but trying my luck...

I have an eDirectory driver (IDM 3.5.1 on NetWare 6.5), which links new
users to a user template through which the home directory is created.
This works fine for most of the accounts, but for some the home
directory is not created. Can't see anything strange on those user
accounts, and the settings of the rest of the template (a few groups)
did apply to those accounts. When looking through the tracing file, no
errors or warnings show.
Does anybody know what could be causing this?

I have a really weird problem here. My AD driver is setup to do a
mirror sync of Edirectory one way. All changes to existing objects
(passwords etc) are syncing perfectly but when a new user is created
they never appear in AD. Here is the weird bit. When I look at the trace
it looks like all has worked. The user gets an association and the trace
says in bright green SUCCESS.
If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I've got a 'create new user' wizard set up with several additional wizard pages containing extra information. This information will be stored into the database when the CreatedUser event fires. However, I need to obtain the user ID of the newly created user. How can this be achieved?
Assuming the user id is an Identity field that is generated in SQL, I would return the user id as an output parameter in your stored procedure and reference that parameter in your ASP.NET code.
I believe the code to get the identity value of a newly added record is:
