[THIN] Re: Applying TsProfilePath via TSCMD with Variables

I use VBScript to change TSProfilePaths and TSHomeDrives all the time on
Win2K using Thomas Eck's COM object. It *DOES* work on Win2K. In fact,
it works on NT4, too.

As I understand the things written, it will only work with =3D
windows2003??? Who is runnign w2k3?, I'm not and I don't know anyone who
is.....so =3D maybe in the near future this will be a blessing but now
it's just a nice very welcome addition we needed at least two years ago.

Sorry to be so cynical but I've been looking for a tool like this too =
=3D
long already, and now this is like we say "make someone happy with a
dead =3D bird" 'cause none of my current customers will upgrade in the
next year...so =3D I'm stuck with the uselessness of the curent tools.

...pffff, letting of steam after a hard day at work......

And for the kix / wsh comparison, kix I use for login scripts and wsh =
=3D
for administration scripts...so the compare is not relevant for me at
least. =3D


Greetings and have a nice evening or working day.

Jeff,
Thanks for the great tip This is really great stuff. I had a lot of=3D20
problems with the terminal server profiles, and I tried to look =
into=3D20
adsi and scripting. But the older version of the adsi api didn't
expose=3D20 the ts profile path property. I believe that this is an
example of the=3D20 superiority of WSH and scripting vs KIX. There had
been  a long=3D20 discussion about this topic in the previous day. I am
happy to find some =3D

other administrator that is using wsh to create administrator
scripts.=3D20
http://www.winnetmag.com/WindowsServer2003/Index.cfm?ArticleID=3D3D26365
This article is about windows server 2003 that is actually shipping with
=3D

a specific dll for terminal server.
