I saw that several people have requested an option in NSM to delete
orphaned home directories. I put together a script that we use in the
school district where I work and figured it might be of use to someone
here. It checks a directory and renames it if there are no individual
rights assigned.

--------- CHECK.CMD -------
@echo off
rem %%1 == Server name
rem %%2 == Volume
rem %%3 == Base home directory path
rem %%4 == Individual home directory

if "%4" == "old" goto END

echo Checking \\%1\%2\%3\%4
rem echo Checking \\%1\%2\%3\%4 >> .\logs\%1.txt

if exist rights.txt del rights.txt
trstlist /d \\%1\%2\%3\%4 > rights.txt
txtrepl /Q rights.txt "0 trustees"

if errorlevel 1 goto END

ren \\%1\%2\%3\%4 old.%4

:END
----------------------------------

This script uses two other utilities: TRSTLIST and TXTREPL. TRSTLIST
output the trustee assignments for a given file / directory, and TXTREPL
searches a file for a given text string. I'm sure there are other
utilities which can perform these same functions. I go under the
assumption that if there are no trustee assignments to a home directory the
original user has been deleted and does not exist anymore.

To get this script to check all home directories on a server I call it
using the FOR command, as such:

--------------------
for /D %%I in (\\server\vol1\home\staff\*.*) do call check.cmd SERVER VOL1
HOME\STAFF %%~nI
--------------------

(all on one line of course). If running this from a command prompt (as
opposed to a batch file) change the two "%%" to a "%".

As I have it written the CHECK.CMD script just renames the directory, but
it could easily be changed to move or delete the directory.

Hope this helps someone.
