After further discussion, the decision has been made to not provide Home folders to student workers as standard practice. Departments can request a Home folder for a student worker, but they need to be aware that they will be charged for the storage space. Work is currently underway to clean up existing P: drives; these will be addressed individually with the owning departments by the Accounts team.
Moving forward, any student worker account that does need a Home folder will need to have Exchange Attribute 7 set to “StudentHomeFolder.” Please let me know if you have questions or concerns.
The decision has been made to not create Home folders for Student Workers as standard. If a department specifically requests a Home folder for a student worker that can be done, but the department will need to be aware that they will be charged for the storage space.
We are currently doing cleanup on Student Worker accounts and removing existing Home folders that do not currently have any data. Those Home folders that do have data will be addressed individually.
Any student worker that does need to have a Home folder will need to have Exchange Attribute 7 marked with “StudentHomeFolder.”
We are NOT creating Home space for student workers after all; a process is under development to address those student accounts that already have Home space so that data is not lost.
More details to come.
