User specific drive mapping (custom expression using homedrive value from AD????)

I've been asked to setup user drive mapping. The PDF mentions they way to do simple drive mappings using \\server\<USER>$.

That may be fine for a small organisation, but with a big organisation, there are dozens of \\servers, and thousands of <USER>$ shares.

In Windows, there is the %homedrive% variable. There has to be a similar attribute in AD/LDAP (considering the path to each users home drive is IN AD).

So...I figure if I can get the SA to read that value/variable in AD, and use that variable as the path to the share, then I'll always get the uses home drive.

So...um....any ideas how I do this?

Did you try to use attribute for file bookmark ? e.g.\\<userAttr.HomeShares> for bookmark entry.

It mentioned in Admin guide "Supplemental Information" section.
