User and Group Management

Perhaps no single administration task can take as much time as routine user and group administration, particularly in a large, complex Windows NT/2000 installation.  Setting up individual home directories, shares, and the security requirements can be especially time-consuming.  Hyena's user management features are one of its core functions.

If your Windows NT/2000 configuration makes use of home directories, Hyena has a unique solution for you: Hyena allows multiple templates to be configured that can be used to automatically create the user's home directory, optionally share it, plus configure the share and/or NTFS permissions...all automatically.   This functionality is available for both standard and Terminal Server home directories.
