I am working on a custom deprovision task and have the need to delete a directory on a file server (not a profile directory) and cannot find a function in Adaxes to do so. Would you have a powershell script, or something, that would work for me? Basically I need to delete something like the following path:


Thanks in advance.

Yes, a PowerShell script will perfectly fit for this purpose. Here's a sample script that deletes a folder specified by $folderPath.

# Get Remote Desktop Services profile path  
$folderPath = "\\servername\datafiles\hou\%username%\MyDocuments\"

# Check whether the folder exists
if(!(Test-Path -Path $folderPath))
    $Context.LogMessage("Folder '$folderPath' does not exist.", "Warning") # TODO: modify me

Remove-Item -Path $folderPath -Force -Recurse

To add the script to a Custom Command, Business Rule or Scheduled Task, use the Run a program or PowerShell script action.


Thanks but a quick question. in the last line:

Remove-Item -Path $rdsProfilePath -Force -Recurse

should this actually be:

Remove-Item -Path $FolderPath-Force -Recurse



Yes, you are right. Sorry for this. We updated the original posting.

I'm trying to understand the best approach to use when developing scripts for Adaxes. In the Management console you can't see the details of an object while coding. ... possible there are additional attributes I don't see. Thanks in advance for your advice.
