Accessing a user's home directory
I'm building a xulrunner application, and I have a need to store/
access files in a user's home directory; that is, the application may
be installed system-wide, but each user will be able to store/access
their own files with it.
How do I reference the user's home directory in a platform-agnostic

On page 86 of the IDM 3.01 install guide for User App, it says that you
shouldn't login as ROOT to install, but that the install directory goes
into the user's home directory in the /novell/idm directory.
Now, why would you want to install something into a specific user's home
directory for server-based software that needs writable access?
Is there a better place to install the User App to? (/usr or

Does anyone have any experience or recommendations with products that
could encrypt a user's home directory entirely, where by they would
unlock it upon logging into the tree?

___________________________...Can you move User's Home Directories by Hand?
I have a need to move about 200 user's home directories from a NW5.0
server to and NW6.5 server. I was going to do it this weekend. I was
searching around on Deja.com and it seems a lot of people pay a bundle to
get a utility to do it. Is there anything wrong with just copying the
directories from one server to another and then editing the user objects
through console1 and changing it to the new loc? Obviously it will take
some time, but is there any actual reason or danger invovled in just doing
it this way? Thanks for your help. Hopefully, I can get it done this
wee...Re-associate User ID's with Home Directories
When our main server crashed, we had to restore from backup. All the
volumes containing our users files were restored back into their original
location and server was given the same name, but our users have lost the
association between their account and home directory. We started to
manually go through and re-associate the directories with the users on
ConsoleOne, but this would take days. Is there a tool that could perform
a batch operation for such a task? The User ID is the same as the folder

Is it possible to have ifolder point to the user's H:drive? I think it
would be much easier to maintain. Also easier on the users they would not

versions. Can someone let me know if its been added or how to do it? Thank

Continuing with my assigned task of migrating the company's PCs to

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:

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.
