I plan to use the Server Consolidation utility to break up a large volume =
into several smaller volumes. One new volume will be for hom directories =
only. Once I get the files and rights moved, are there any utilities that =

I want to move multiple users home direcotry to new server, the only
change is server and volume, there is no change on path.
How can I do this?
I tried NWadmin to modify multiple users, after I put in new volume and
apply the change, the path have been overwirte, and become blank. I tried
to put variable %username or %login_name, they won't pick it up.

You could use UIMPORT for this, or easier SETHOME from the JRB

Pedag...move user home directory to secondary server
I have to move user home directories to a secondary server. What's the
best way to establish the new home directory reference in console one. I
can go to the screen containing the home directory reference and manually
enter the new location. Is there an automated way to do this??? i have
already taken care of rights on the secondary server.

We would like to move our USER home directories from one NSS volume to
another NSS volume on the same server. We have used the 3rd party NWCOPY
utility in the past for large inter/intra server file copies and it seems to
work good. Since NWCOPY allows us to pre-copy the data in smaller chunks at
a convenient time and then do a smaller delta/synch copy when the final
cutover is planned, we likely plan on using this utility in combination with
some other utilities like HOMES to change the eDir home directory attributes
and file rights.

Yes you can use...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.

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

I have a question, how to sync home directorires of users from Identity

Into AD there are 2 LDAP attributes calleds homeDrive (the network drive
letter) and homeDirectory that is the network path used to map during user
My doubt is about the eDirectory volume information. The volume will be not
sync to the AD because AD does not recognize this information, right? So,
how to sync? I was thinking about create 2 eDirectory attributes where I

What do you think about this?
Anyone can help me?

Hi, hope you can help out...
When a user logs in to NetWare, the %home_directory is mapped to
<volume>:USER\<username> on the NetWare server. Roaming profile is
enabled via a NDS user package, to store the user profile in user home
directory. User profile should be copied to the local workstation upon
login and copied back to the server upon logout.
There are space restrictions on the user�s home directories. We found
that some user�s home directory is full, but they are not getting any
error when they log out. Only that the user profile, e.g., USER.DAT or
