Ever logged in to Cerberus FTP Server with your Active Directory account and wondered why you have two home directories? This guide explains why it happens and how you can fix it!
Cerberus can use either your username or your User Principal Name (UPN) to create your home directory. This can lead to two separate directories if you use both your SAM account (username) and your UPN account to log in. This can be confusing and cause problems with file organization.
Cerberus offers a simple fix! Just enable the "Use UPN for Home Directory for AD" setting in the User Manager - Policy section. This tells Cerberus to always use your UPN for home directory creation, regardless of which account you use to log in.
- No more duplicate directories: All users will have one organized home directory, making file management easier.
- Improved user experience: Less confusion means a smoother workflow for everyone.
- Centralized file access: All files are stored in one place, regardless of login method.
What about existing directories?
If you already have two directories, you'll need to manually rename one of them to match your UPN. This ensures all your files are stored in the correct location.
- This change applies to all new users after enabling the setting.
- Existing directories need manual renaming.
By making this simple change, you can streamline your Cerberus FTP Server experience and keep your files organized!
