I see... muddling through this, I seem to have somehow fixed this by
following the POSIX ACL instructions, but not completely fixed. It has
got to the stage where if I create a new user (called testuser) and
assign their roaming profile & home folder, it works fine, I can
create/delete files, no more issues with log-in.
However, "new" users with existing folders carried forward from the old
server still have permission issues - existing users can access the root
of their profile & home folders, create folders and delete them, but
cannot access or modify existing folders. So I presume the existing
folders have all the wrong permissions, and I need to propogate the
permissions from the user's root folder to the existing
folders/subfolders - what's the best way to do this?
Secondly, I've spotted that I also need to do folder redirections as
I was able to do it for the testuser's "Documents" folder successfully,
however the other folders I tried to redirect (Music & Videos) didn't
have the "Redirect to the user's home directory" option - how do I sort
Finally, you're certainly a font of knowledge! Many thanks for your time.
With kind regards - Piers
