SYMPTOMS

When you select multiple users in User Manager for Domains on Terminal Server and select Properties/Profile/Terminal Server Home Directory/ Connect X: to \\SERVERNAME\SHARE\%USERNAME%, after you click OK, the user's home directories are created with incorrect permissions. The user's home directories will have Everyone - Full Control and System - Full Control.

CAUSE

An administrator currently must manually change permissions on user's home directories created this way. This problem only appears when multiple users are selected, not when selecting an individual user.

RESOLUTION

If users home directories are created individually, permissions will be set correctly. The user's home directories will have Administrators - Special Access, System - Full Control, and %username% - Full Control. To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition.
