Where is the user's home folder located when logging into the domain with ADmitMac?

ADmitMac has three different home folder options, and each uses a different location for the home folder:

Network home folder:  This option connects to the user's network home (or "U: drive") and mounts it.  No information is stored locally on the Mac, only in their network home.

Local home folder:  ADmitMac will create a locally stored profile in /Domain/<domain name>/Users/<user name>.
