How can I use Symbolic links with network home folders so that part of the user's home folder is on the server and part of it is local to the user's machine?

You may want to provide network home folders to your users, but keep parts of their home folder on a local hard disk. For example, you might want to keep a user's Movies folder on the local disk and encourage them to keep their iMovie projects there to improve performance and reduce network storage needs. Symbolic links are used to point the Movies folder back to the local disk. For example, you can direct a user's Movies folder to a folder on the local disk using these steps:

1. Log in as the domain user.
2. Open the /Domain/domain.com/ folder
3. Create a new folder named "LocalStorage"
4. Open this new folder and create a new folder named "username"
5. Open this new folder and create a new folder named "Movies"
6. Launch the Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/).
7. Enter the command:

mv Movies NetworkMovies

This will keep existing files from being removed inadvertently.

8. Enter the command:

ln -s /Domain/domain.com/LocalStorage/username/Movies/ Movies
