Auto Domain Users Home Drive Share Creation

I have seen many posts on different forums regarding a script that can automatically create domain users home drive share and automatically assign share permissions.
So I thought to write a script that can ease system administrators job.

The beauty of this script is that it creates user folders in its respective OU name directory and assign them Read and Change share permissions. It also assigns "Domain Admins" a Full Control permission.

The only thing that you require is Administrators rights and you need to set two variables (SrvName, SrvDir) inside this script. Set SrvDir variable name with the Server name that holds users home drive share and set SrvDir with the actual path where these folder are to you created.

Following script requires RMTShare.exe program that Microsoft has placed on their FTP site at []

After downloading RMTSHAR.EXE, double-click it to extract the Readme.txt and Rmtshare.exe files.
Copy Rmtshare.exe to a folder where you save this script.

So here you go....


::User Editable Variables - START
SET SrvName=\\JPAKK15
:: User Editable Variables - END

SET _SrvPath=%SrvName%\%SrvDir::=$%
PING -n 3 -w 1000 %SrvName:\=% |FIND /I "TTL" >NUL
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 ECHO ERROR: Invalid server name or server unreachable. &GOTO :EXITScript
IF NOT EXIST "%_SrvPath%" ECHO Invalid server path or insufficient rights. &GOTO :EXITScript
FOR /F "delims=" %%u IN ('DSQuery * -Filter "(sAMAccountType=805306368)" -Attr samAccountName -l -limit 0') DO (
    FOR /F "delims=, tokens=2" %%v IN ('DSQuery * -Filter "(sAMAccountName=%%u)" -Attr distinguishedName -l -limit 0') DO (
        SET _vTmp=%%v
        SET _OUName=!_vTmp:~3!)
        IF NOT EXIST "!_SrvPath!\!_OUName!" MKDIR "!_SrvPath!\!_OUName!"
        IF NOT EXIST "!_SrvPath!\!_OUName!\%%u" (
            ECHO Processing: %%u
            MKDIR "!_SrvPath!\!_OUName!\%%u"
            RMTShare !SrvName!\"%%u"="!SrvDir!\!_OUName!\%%u" /REMOVE Everyone /GRANT "Domain Admins":F /GRANT %%u:C /REMARK:"User Drive" >NUL))
