Hello Dolly, and welcome to FixYa.
As I´m not sure if you want to make a folder for a Domain user or a Local user, so I´ll give you both.
Domain user:
Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Active Directory Users and Computers.
In the console tree, click Users.
In the Details pane, right-click the user account, and then click Properties.
In the Properties dialog box, click Profile.
Under the Home folder, type the folder information. To do this, follow these steps:
To assign a home folder on a network server, click Connect, and then specify a drive letter.
In the To box, type a path. This path can be any one of the following types:
Network path, for example: \\server\users\test
You can substitute username for the last subfolder in the path, for example: \\server\users\username
NOTE: server is the name of the file server housing the home folders, and users are the shared folder.
Click OK.

    Local user:

    You assign a home folder to a local user like this:

    Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management.

    In the console tree, click Users in Local Users and Groups.

    Click the user account.

    Click the Action menu, and then click Properties.

    Click the Profile tab, click Connect, and then specify a drive letter.

    In the To box, type a path. This path can be any of the following types:

    Network path, for example:\\server\users\test

    You can substitute username for the last subfolder in the path, for example: \\server\users\username

    NOTE: server is the name of the file server housing the home folders, and users are the shared folder.

    Click OK.

SOURCE: Server2003 AD problem

go to active directory - users and computers, set a home folder in the profile tab of the users options,

also if you go into the gpo manager (group policy object) and i think the option of folder redirection is under windows - administrative templates

to open the gpo go start -> run -> mmc

file -> add/remove snap-in and select the gpo editor you can set this to enforce, if you want to do specific users you will have to create a new security group and add the users into it, then select the options that you want them to have, you can even restrict specific operations when they are logged on from there.

hope thats ok for you, if you need clarification just ask

Firstly if you are to scan to a "shared folder" on server, have you configured the access rights for the shared folder? Depends on how you want it, you may want create a User "LaserJet" in AD and use this account for all scans.
You should be able to do more configuration using it's IP Address web interface.

How to Reset AD Password for Windows Server 2000, 2003 and 2008?


Have you ever forgotten Active Directory (AD) password? Do you know how to reset AD password? Is there any Windows password reset software to do AD password reset? If not, what to do to reset AD password? Before answering these questions and do AD password reset, you need to what is active directory, Windows domain and domain controller.
What is Active Directory?Active Directory is used by system administrators to store information about users, assign security policies, and deploy software. It was released first with Windows 2000 Server edition and refined further in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and was renamed Active Directory Domain Services. AD components include such domains, domain controllers, trust relationships, forests, organizational units, etc. What is a domain controller?
According to Wiki, a domain controller is a server that responds to security authentication requests (logging in, checking permissions, etc.) within the Windows Server domain. The domain controllers in your network are the centerpiece of your Active Directory service. It stores user account information, authenticates users and enforces security policy for a Windows domain. When you install Windows Server on a computer, you can choose to configure a specific server role for that computer. When you want to create a new domain, or an additional domain controller in an existing domain, you configure the server with the role of domain controller by installing AD DS.
What is a Domain?A domain is a concept introduced in Windows NT whereby a user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.
The domain concept not only allows a user to have access to resources that may be on different servers, but it also allows one domain to be given access to another domain in a trust relationship. In this arrangement, the user need only log in to the first domain to also have access to the second domain's resources as well.
So it is hard to say if there any windows password recovery software can reset AD password. Windows password recovery software like Windows Password Unlocker Enterprise can allow you to reset domain administrator password on Active directory for Windows server 2000/2003/2008.
Steps to reset domain administrator password
  • Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Unlocker Enterprise in any available computer.
  • Step 2: Run the software and insert a USB flash drive to computer.
  • Step 3: Select Domain Administrator and target USB drive, and then click the Burn button to start burning an ISO image file to the USB flash drive.
  • Step 4: Click ok when burning process is completed.
  • Step 5: Insert the burned USB flash drive to your locked computer and set the computer to boot from USB.
  • Step 6: Choose the way to reset AD password.
  • 2 options for you to reset domain password
  • 0b60bd0.jpg
  • Option 1: Reset the default domain administrator password to Pa123456
  • Option 2: Reset AD password by creating a specified domain administrator account.
  • Step 7: Click YES to continue and click Ok when the domain password has been successfully reset.
Now you can log on your domain with the user name of administrator and password of 'Pa123456' if you select option 1. If you select option 2, you can log on domain with the username of 'passkiller' and password of 'Pa123456'.

I have insttall A D but not open the active directoryes user & computer


Hello,

If you are using server 2003, please check it out where the ntds and sysvol files are stored, when installing ADS.

You have two option to view the successfull AD:

  • opening AD users and computer on Administrative tools.
  • viewing Domain option (xyz.com), when you logon to an account.
if, these process are not available for you. There is no option other than reinstalling ADS using dcpromo.

thanks,

Windows 2003 Logon script


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.

Access files


Sharing is not enough on windows server 2003. You will need to give privilages to the Everyone user on that folder and enable the Guest user from the Computer Management/Users and Groups panel.

You can also create a new user from there. Give it security and sharing privilages on that folder. And login with it from the other computer.

Want to give give security


All you have to do is go to the properties of the folder by highlighting the folder and pressing properties. Look for the Sharing tab and make sure it is set for sharing. There should be a security tab where you can add the users you want to use the file and what they can use the file for. These users must be in the server already. If there not in the server you have to add them. If they haven't logged into the domain (your server yet) they will be asked for a password. Otherwise you will have to create another user id and password for that folder.
