Some of the things we worked out on SBS 2003:
- SBS domain with multiple e-mail domains had a User Template named and designated for each domain. Run the Add User Wizard and choose the DomainA.com User Template and that would be the user's UserName@DomainA.com e-mail address. This tied into custom LDAP queries via Exchange Recipient Policies, Group Policy, and Security Group membership.
- Custom share permissions assigned via User Template and tied into Access-Based Enumeration.
- Custom OUs for particular workstation and user setups via the Add Computer wizard.
Things have changed a bit for SBS 2008:
Add a new user role based on the User's properties
The new Add a new user role based on the User's properties wizard that takes all of the customizations that we can do with a test user account and create the new User Role (SBS 2003: User Template).
How kewl is that?!? :)
Once we have our User Role created, we can go on to add any new users based on it, or run the Change user role for user accounts wizard to change existing user's profiles.
