    Hi,

    In 10.8 you're able to change the location of your home directory. You can do this in System Preferences - Accounts - Right click your account - advanced. Here I can change my homefolder to a different partition.

    This is all clear to me but if I login as a new (AD) user (or create a new local user) OSX creates a new user in the default user directory.

    What I want is that OSX automatically creates any new user on the other partition.

    Is this possible? Is this maybe a setting in some .plist file?

    You could create a script that copies the directory over and creates a symlink in the current /Users.
