Existing Directories
Authored by: Anonymous on Dec 09, '02 07:10:50AM

How does this command handle existing home directories? Does it simply irngnore them if they already exist, or does it overwrite existing files with the ones from the UserTemplate?

Existing Directories

it does not overwrite existing home directories. I do not believe there is a way to overwrite previously created directories with this command, the only options are the following:

A list of flags and their descriptions:

-a: creates home directories for users defined in all directory domains of the servers search path.
-l: creates home directories for users defined in the local directory domain.
-n directoryDomainName: creates home directories for users defined in a specific directory domain in the servers search path.
-u username: creates a home directory for a specific user defined in the domain(s) identified in the -a, -l, or -n parameter. If you omit the -a, -l, and -n parameters when you use the -u parameter, -a is assumed.
