[THIN] Re: conditional setting for home drive

They use H : drive as their TS home drive. Can you assign your users a Terminal 
Services Home directory to points to their home and map to the d : ???

Marc-Andre,

Users open Accuterm in Citrix and logon to Jbase telnet server. Jbase telnet
daemon calls remote.cmd from user's home drive file upon logon. Home drive
location is determined from AD and Domain logon scripts are not used in this
case. If you have networked home drive in AD or no homedrive at all Jbase
defaults to Windows directory (C:\WINNT) and looks for remote.cmd there.

Remote.cmd is unique for each user because it contains ports user uses with
Jbase. Right now all the users of this software are forced to have their
homedrives set to d:\users\%username% so when they log into Jbase their
remote.cmd is run from there. If they log into citrix their home probably
defaults to their profile as D: drive does not exist on my citrix servers (I
use remapped drives)

Our consultants were able to write a script to run with Accuterm and call
different cmd file. I will probable jump on it and ask them to call
%username%.cmd script depending on which user is logging on. After that I'll
rename all the users remote.cmd files from D:\users\%username% folders into
%username%.cmd and drop them all into c:\WINNT folder. Then I can specify
network home drive for all users in AD. This way when user logs in Jbase is
going to error out (because now home drive is set to network share) and
default to C:\WINNT and look dor %username%.cmd there. 

I tried to place my remote.cmd in c:\winnt and set my homedrive to network
share in AD and it worked.

If your clients use JBase what is these users home drive is set to in AD?.

Can you give more detail about the ugly thing of your app.

One of our client use exactly the same setup as you, JBASE3.0 and accuterm
97, we publish accuterm via citrix and we have no problem at all.

Hi group,

I have an older telnet-based application (Jbase30 )running on the dedicated
server. Users access it through terminal programm (Accuterm 97) published in
Citrix.

This app seem to require an home drive set to local drive d:\Users\username.
We set user's home drive to local d:\users\username in AD and it works fine.
Now when same user uses normal windows apps in my citrix (with remapped
drives to x and y) there is no d drive and things become pretty ugly.

I think about clearing home drive settings in AD and manipulate user home
drive settings depending on server he/she logs on to. I can get as far as
setting the condition in my logon script:

If exist d:\JBASE30\bin\jsh.exe goto JBASE
If exist %windir%\system\kernel32.dll goto WIN_OK
If exist %windir%\system32\kernel32.dll goto WIN_OK

:WIN_OK
net use u: \\server_name\sharename\%username%
SET HOMEDRIVE=U
SET HOMESHARE=\\server_name\sharename\%username%
echo The letter U: on your computer has been mapped to your user account
goto EXIT

:JBASE
SET HOMEDRIVE=D
SET HOMEPATH=\USERS\%USERNAME%
goto EXIT

:EXIT

I verified my condition works. Currently Home Drive setting for the test
user is set to local drive and is blank. Any server I log in to defaults my
home variables to systemroot\documents and Settings\%username%. This means I
can not overwrite what is set in AD. Can someone piont me in the right
direction?

Thanks a lot,
