logon home (G)
This parameter can be used with Win9X workstations
to ensure that roaming profiles are stored in a
subdirectory of the user's home directory. This is
done in the following way:
logon home = \\%N\%U\profile
logon path (G)
This parameter specifies the home directory where
roaming profiles (NTuser.dat etc files for Windows
NT) are stored.
Windows clients can sometimes maintain a connection
to the [homes] share, even though there is no user
logged in. Therefore, it is vital that the logon
path does not include a reference to the homes
share (i.e. setting this parameter to \%N\%U\pro
file_path will cause problems).
Default: logon path = \\%N\%U\profile
The questions I have about the above are:
If setting logon path to \%N\%U\path is a bad thing, why is it the
If windows clients sometimes maintain a connection to the
homes share with no user logged on, doesn't this cause a problem for
Win9x machines, or is it only NT machines that do this?
What happens if no profile directory exists in the users home share
in the win9x case, are roaming profiles not enabled, or is it created
