Rename and create symbolic link

Path

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

Description

Renames the specified directory in the network home directory to a temporary folder and creates a symbolic link to it on the local computer.

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

  • 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

To restore the original /Library/Caches directory, use the Delete symbolic link and restore policy (enabled for the logout time folder).

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).
