Heads Up: Here's a cool free tool that's worth a look. This is a utility for creation and deletion of home directories. You can use the program to create new home directories, or use the program for re-creation of the HOME DIRECTORY attribute in eDirectory after a migration and so on. The program can also mass remove home directories.

The program has a few different user selection options, e.g.: Context, Group or LDIF file and more.

You can select if you want to create the NDS home attribute or the HOME DIRECTORY itself (or both), and you can set the directory attributes, trustee rights, volume-space restrictions or directory quotas or ownership for all files in a HOME DIRECTORY (especially useful after a migration).

Other features of the program:

  • CVS import.
  • Set/Clear Default server of a user.
  • Alias support in context search.
  • Conditionally set the UserSpace/directory quotas.

There is also an extended version of this program (Homesplus 2.15). That version is not free.
