Adding a user with home directory
When I add a new user to the AD with a home directory specified I want the directory to be created (as if I added the user via the user manager). I want the new user to be the owner and the permissions set correctly.
How to I do this?
There is not a ready, easy-made solution for this. You would have to go out to the server or DFS share and create the directory yourself. Then you would need to apply the appropriate permissions yourself as well. It can be done in code, but requires knowledge of DACLs and ACEs.Ryan DunnWeblog The BookLDAP Programming Help

Is it possible to authenticate users against users in the Active Directory, and, upon authentication, retrieve their Home Directory? We need this for our school (students can log in remotely and get their files).
If you can't get the home directory, can we see which Roles they belong to?
You can certainly do both.
The attribute for home directory is called "homeDirectory", so, to retrieve a user's home directory, you could do something like this:

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

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

Now, why would you want to install something into a specific user's home

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.

We are trying to setup a WDK environment similar to what we did with
Citrix. In Citrix, each user could have a different "home" directory.
Also, each user could have their own WIN.INI.
I can't find any reference to this in the WDK documentation. How is
I don't believe that is possible. However, you should be able to store user
specific information in the registry.
