    • Release Notes Summary:
      Updated the documentation of the User resource's managehome property to explicitly state that it manages the creation/deletion of the user profile on Windows instead of the home directory.

      Description

      The Windows user resource will allow specifying a custom home directory

      puppet resource user jenkins managehome=true home=c:\jenkins password=Puppet123!
      

      Puppet will claim that this has worked correctly:

      Notice: /User[jenkins]/ensure: created
      user { 'jenkins':
        ensure   => 'present',
        home     => 'c:\jenkins',
        password => 'Puppet123!',
      }
      

      However, the home directory will not actually be created and the default directory will be created.
