I have a project that I have been asked to work on that involves a NAS storage device like a ReadyNAS from NetGear to serve as mass storage outside of our normal OES Storage for end users. The storage is intended for our Web Design, Coding, Video and Picture editing classes. I can mape drives using the net use command but was hoping I might have other options where I can get OES and eDirectory to manage the rights to the NAS drives and MAP the drive for the student upon login. Is there any NAS storage device that interfaces with eDirectory to allow for something similar to Home Drive mappings for each individual student listed in a specific group? Something that isn't shared storage as much as Network storage for their projects that is individualized?

I haven't purchased a device yet in hope that there is a specific device or a work around that might do what I need.

Thanks for the assistance.
