I am trying to prepopulate a user's home directory before they log in for the first time. I would like to do this programmically. Right now, I can create a the folder, but when a user logs in, it creates a different one with the domain added to the end. Here is what so far.
@echo off IF EXIST C:\USERS\%1 GOTO COMPLETE GOTO FIRSTLOGON :FIRSTLOGON :: Create user folder on C:\ mkdir "C:\USERS\%1" :: copy folder structure from template to new user folder mkdir "c:\Users\%1\Desktop" mkdir "c:\Users\%1\Documents" mkdir "c:\Users\%1\Downloads" mkdir "c:\Users\%1\Music" mkdir "c:\Users\%1\Pictures" :: Set rights on new folder ::: Remove inheritance, grant owner everything and admin everything icacls "C:\USERS\%1" /inheritance:r /grant DOMAIN\%1:(OI)(CI)F icacls "C:\USERS\%1" /grant %computername%\Administrator:(OI)(CI)F GOTO END :COMPLETE echo Folder creation complete :END
However, the folder wont be the user's home directory. I am guessing that I will need to add a registry key with the user's GUID to HKLM > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows NT > CurrentVersion > ProfileList, but unsure how to get the GUID from the username, and if I need to do anything else.
Note: I don't want do change the user's home directory for every computer, just the one that they are logging in.
