Profile Tab

Use this tab to specify the environment properties of the user.

The fields in this tab are listed below:

User Profile Path

Specifies a network path to a roaming or mandatory user profile for a selected user. The path you enter must follow the format:


Logon Script Name

Specifies a logon script to the user account. A user account is also known as an account.

If the logon script is located in a subdirectory of the logon script path, the relative path precedes the file name. If a logon script is assigned to a user account, it runs each time the user logs on. It can be a batch file (.cmd or .bat file name extension) or an executable program (.exe file name extension).

One logon script can be assigned to one or more user accounts. When a user logs on, the server authenticating the logon locates the logon script by following the server's logon script path (usually \WINNT\SYSTEM32\REPL\IMPORT\SCRIPTS).

For example, you might type clerks.cmd or you might type admins\ernesta.bat.

Computers running Microsoft Network Client for MS-DOS, Version 3.0, Windows NT Version 3.1, and LAN Manager 2.x must use the .bat file name extension.

Home Directory Path

Specifies the home directory of the workstation where the user logs on. For example:


Note: This is a local path unless a Connect ..To drive is selected.

Connection Mode

Shares a network directory. The list box specifies a shared network directory as the home directory and connects the user's computer to that directory at logon. For example, you might specify drive J in the Connect box and then type \\airedale\users\johnbr.
