if one has homedrive set as follows:
h: \\server\share\user.name

@homedrive returns h:
@homeshr returns \\server\share
@homedir returns user~1.nam

trying to map that, with:
use @homedrive @homeshr+"\"+@homedir

fails.
can you ruud add a macro for PATH.
the whole path and nothi...
well, something that would return the WHOLE PATH
\\server\share\user.name

and could be used unlike the current ones...

use @homedrive @homepath

thanks.

@homeshr and @homedir

Both return the same information for me.

It works OK for me:
Code:
use q: @HOMESHR+"\"+@HOMEDIR



Give me:
Code:
Status       Local     Remote                    Network
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OK Q: \\hmiuklhdfl001\users$\rhowarth\MYDOCU~1
Microsoft Windows Network



Jooel, what error do you get when the mapping fails? It's not down to something as simple as @HOMEDRIVE being already mapped, is it?

Jooel, you're sure about that @homedrive returns h:
,@homeshr returns \\server\share and @homedir returns user~1.nam ? Like doc said, @homedir and @homeshr returns the same info for me aswell.
Richard, seems like it returns something like Jooel says for you, otherwise your macro-line should be something like use q: \\server\share\\\server\share, no?

well...
guess the issue is that kixtart uses some shortname thingie for the homedir macro.
anyways, adding a homepath macro would remove the need to add up macros for something that is a single field in the user account settings.

How does the entry look for you? I don't have to add up any macros to get that path but I do a hidden share for each user and not \\server\folder\share
mine is
\\server\share$

mine is:
\\server\share\user.name

or more accurately:
\\server\share\first.lastname

hmmm.. okay. Wonder if that F.L is part of the issue.

Have never seen it done that way.

If I get time this week I'll play with some variations and see what results I get.

May want to move this to General until we can confirm there is a real issue.

Doesn't really bother me, just that currently you're the only one that seems to think it is an issue.

I'll do some testing to see if I can confirm though. But must say that it seems to operate the same as it did back in 3.x days so not sure why after 5 years or so it seems to come up for you now.

because I have new domain and for the first time, the user account name is long and for the first time it has dot in it.

and again, I can accept that it works as it has always worked, but I need a new macro that will work properly so I can map the damn drive.
thus, this is in suggestions.

This code -

Code:

'KiX version: ' + @KiX ??
'Home Drive (HomeDrive macro): ' + @HomeDrive ?
'Long Home Folder (LongHomeDir macro): ' + @LongHomeDir ?
'Home Share (HomeShr macro): ' + @HomeShr ?
'Home Directory (HomeDir macro): ' + @HomeDir ?



Produced these results for me when I used a long folder name
like Jooel has done.

Code:
KiX version: 4.53 Release Candidate 1
 
Home Drive (HomeDrive macro): U:
Long Home Folder (LongHomeDir macro): This.is.a.reallybigtest.now
Home Share (HomeShr macro): \\MSEF001\USERS$
Home Directory (HomeDir macro): THISIS~1.NOW



So I can confirm along with Jooel that the Macro needs some
updating to produce the correct results for Long names.

where did you get that @longhomedir?
I've never ever thought to even look for one as I've always assumed homedrive related macros are named @home****

so, with it I can make it work.

but my suggestion still stands.
please ruud, add a macro that returns the full homePath

What this returns depends on what's stored in ADUC / AD.... if there's H:\ there, it will return H:\, if it's an UNC path (recommended), it will return that...
