Setting up users from a workstation and creating long directory names in their home directory using the user template's setup script attribute always results in a truncated directory name.
SOLUTION: Use "cmd" to call the command interpreter instead of "command" as shown in scripting documentation.
EXAMPLE: The template setup scripts wind up looking like:
- # map root t:=fs1/data:homes\staff\%login_name - # cmd /c md t:public_html - # cmd /c fs1/sys:public\bats\login\folders.bat
where 'folders.bat' creates subfolders and copies files common to all users.
