I got Folder Redirection on as well but I want to redirect to the users 
homeDirectory and for that this directory needs to be automatic created.

I got my profile and users share on my samba fileserver and not addc.

The profile is created file, but the homeDirectory is not... and then 
the folder redirection is failing as well.

# cat 
\&\ Settings/fdeploy.ini
