Question about Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2003 for PC
We have 10 PC's in our organization that are connected to a new Windows 2003 Server. What we want to be able to do is have all the seperate username logins but we want the ''My Documents'' folder for each computer to always go to their own ''My Documents'' location
Example: Jane logs in on PC0001. It always has \\servername\sharedfolder\PC0001\My Documents as the location.
Example: Jane logs in on PC0002. It always has \\servername\sharedfolder\PC0002\My Documents as the location.
So, as you can see it doesn't matter who logs in .. but where that user logs in is the key
Create a user folder on the server.
create each login folder "PC0001","pc0002", etc............
set the user rights by right click on the folder and select properties. (you need all users name. otherwise, one of more people will not have their file on the server.
now, you need all fo the users that will be using that particular PC login, in order to create the user profile. unless you have one generic login.
right click on "my document" on each of the local machine.
redirect the path under the general tab. to where you wan the files to go to.
that will place the file where you want them to be. like you say it is machine direct, not user direct. i you want user direct, in another words, you want the user files to go to the server regardless where the user is, then you need a Domain Controller and Active Directory setup.
