    Hi all, just messing about with server 03 virtually. I have created a user and logged it on from a virtual xp machine to the domain. But my question is I have created a quota to see how it works. But what would the profile path and local path be for the user? would it be (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users) on the server machine?
    Regards,
    Dave

    Local path is local to the workstation you are logging onto - C:\Docs and Settings\Username

    Server path - I don't know what the default is, but this can be change to whatever server/path it is sat on.

    You would have to create your profile path and define it in the ADUC MMC.

    Ideally it would be something like D:\Users\User1

    It would be at that point that you assign quotas to the disk.

    The only time a user will get a profile on the C drive like you mentioned is if they log on locally to the server (something that a normal user shouldn't normally be allowed to do btw).

    Oh right thanks mate, I will try it later. Then you can base the quota on that path? I guess that would be the path that the users documents are stored ect?

    Regards,

    Thanks both of you,
