    oh no!

    At least this was just the students, and I had some credibility stored up, our mail server was malfunctioning this morning, and I was able to get that going again... Thanks for the confidence booster.

    Very true. I had just gotten so used to clicking ok on those warning messages, that I had stopped reading them. Two keystrokes caused me a ton of work.

    If you don't already have it, check your backup software for an active directory agent. It'll do backups of your AD and you can restore objects that have been corrupted, deleted, etc. It's generally pretty inexpensive for an agent like that but can save you a lot of $ in time.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Sounds like a great idea. I think I will definitely look into it. I am just glad that all of the users files were still intact. Now I just need to go through the painstaking process of mapping their folder to their profile one by one. I have them all where they can log in now, and I have assigned group policy. They can save to the local disk until I get that worked out. I will just tell the teachers to make them use assigned seats ... All in all it hasn't been as much of a nightmare as I first thought it was going to be. Thanks again to the AO community for all of the suggestions and personal accounts of screwing up .

    Well, I'm glad your situation has worked out to a point where you see an end in sight. I'm still convinced that servers should come with a health warning label and a pack of Demerol for anyone who has to deal with them daily.

    you might be able to whip up a login script and apply it to all the affected users, with a creative version of the net use command and the %username% variable :>
