I work at Mid-State Technical College. We are currently in the process of migrating all
of our student home directories to another server. We are able to
successfully maintain permissions and such, however, we need each
student home directory folder to be shared as an administrative share
where the share name is the same as the folder name (i.e. jdoe111 will
have a share of jdoe111$)
If this were only a handful of directories, this wouldn't be an issue,
however, we are talking about somewhere around 12000 directories whcih
makes it inpossible to do by hand within any reasonable amount of time.
Does anyone out there know of a program or script that could do a batch
creation of directory shares for a large number of directories. Again,
the actual share would be nothing special, simply the name of the
direcotry with the '$' appended to it.
Take a look into vbscripting, it shouldn't take you long to find or write
one to do this, I've written them before
at my old job (a technical institute) to do exactly what you are doing,
unfortunately I don't have one handy.
I'll see if I can find one at work tomorrow from my collection, and forward
it to the same list, but in the
mean time, check out this site:
they are an excellent resource for doing this kind of thing.
