Proper Permissions For \\NetworkShare\Users\

233 100+
We have a GPO configured to redirect users' documents folder to \\NetworkShare\Users\%Username%. If the folder exists for the user, everything works as expected. The issue I run into is when we create a new user, as an admin I have to manually create the user's folder. Are there specific permissions that need to be applied to \\NetworkShare\Users\%Username%, or does this have to be a two step process of creating the user's directory, and then have the user log in so the GPO redirects their documents folder?

Does the user have the right to create the directory himself?
if the answer is YES, put an MKDIR in the logon script..

What rights does %user% have on i.e.
\\NetworkShare\Users\%OtherUsername% ??

No, as an admin, I have to manually create the directory first. Also, keep in mind that my reference of %username% is as an Windows environmental variable, not a casual reference such as %user% or %OtherUsername%.

When i was talking about '%user%' or '%OtherUsername%' i did mean environment variables too.

I dont see anything 'uncasual' or 'casual' to something like %user% or %OtherUsername%
