Delete and create symbolic link

Path

User Configuration > Policies > Centrify Settings > Mac OS X Settings > Folder Redirection > Folder Redirect Actions at Login/Logout Time > Delete and create symbolic link

Description

Deletes the specified directory from the network home directory and creates a symbolic link to it on the local computer.

For example, to delete the user’s /Library/Caches policy from the network home directory and create a link to it on the local computer, specify the following after enabling the policy:

  • Path: ~/Library/Caches
  • Link: /tmp/%@/Library/Caches

where %@ specifies the logged in user’s name on the local computer. For example, if cain is the logged in user, the cache files are written to:

/tmp/cain/Library/Caches

Once this group policy is enabled, it takes effect when users log in (enabled for login time folder) or log out (enabled for logout time folder).
