Create Remote Desktop Services profile folder

February 18, 2021

Using Adaxes, you can specify a Remote Desktop Services profile folder path that is stored in the Remote Desktop Services Settings attribute of a user account. However, setting a folder path does not actually create a folder on the file system. This script will automatically create a Remote Desktop Services profile folder for a user at the path specified in by Remote Desktop Services Settings.

To use the script, you need to create a business rule triggered automatically once a new user is created or changed. For more information on how to automatically run a script once a new user is created, see Run PowerShell Script after Creating a User. Alternatively, you can schedule creation of the profile folders.

# Update permissions for the folder

$acl = New-Object System.Security.AccessControl.FileSystemAccessRule($userSid,"FullControl","ContainerInherit,ObjectInherit","None","Allow")
Set-Acl -path $homeFolder $homeFolderACL
