5.8 Removing a Preexisting Process for Creating User Home Folders

When you create and configure a policy, it is important to understand that Storage Manager is now set up to provision and manage all new users that are created in the associated container.

If you have a network tool such as Microsoft Active Directory Users and Computers creating home folders when a new user is added to the domain, organizational unit, or group associated with a policy, you need to remove the setting that creates the home folder.

You might also need to notify anyone who previously managed storage for those users that are now being managed by Storage Manager, to cease any manual storage management tasks such as home folder creation, renames, moves, etc., and allow Storage Manager to now manage the user storage.
