You have users (students, teachers) who are located on different schools in a multi-school environment and you want to configure a global share point for the
Windows home drive.
Step 1 - Each school-DC should have a DNS-CNAME
For each of your school-DC’s you should add the same CNAME in DNS (e.g.
Step 2 - Change
Home Path to the DNS-CNAME
Windows home path to
\\schoolserver\User.Name for each user this should apply.
At this point there is no central share but only a unique access pattern. The user still has a separate
home pathon each school-DC. If you want to change this there are several approaches.
Step 3a - Synchronise the directories
You might implement a synchronisation (e.g. with
rsync) between all the school-DCs.
Step 3b - Use a central share server
You might have a central file share from which the home share is mounted on each school-DC.
There may be other approaches to archive global synchronised
