I and a few of my friends all have laptops (with the exception of one, who has a really really old desktop). Our computers work for us, but we require a lot of hard drive space for the mass amount of work/files we accumulate. So, I got a cheep dell computer, got an extra NIC card and got two 200G hard drives and Windows 2000 Server. I installed Win2kserver, then setup active directory and the DNS server. So far I've got it to the point where a user can access the domain (lamedellbox.local) and login.
here is the problem:
I need an efficiant way to have each user have his/her own folder on the server to put stuff in. I could just create a folder for each user, then set permissions. However, I don't know how to have the server just send them the link and put it on their desktop. I also would like a more efficiant way of setting up shares (rather than manually making a folder for each user). I also need to know a way to limit how much space a user can take up.
1) What is the best way to setup share folders for each user who logs onto the server
2) How can I have a link to that folder be placed on the user's destkop when the login?
3) I've setup a domain security policy, is there anything special I need to do to make the computers who login apply it?
4) How can I setup quotas?
Thanks very much for any advice/help.
