  • Folder Redirect GPO Problem

    Hello All,

    This is my first post. I have win server 2003 and some of XP client. I have folder redirect GPO set up and it work fine before. The problem just happen last week. When I log into my computer I see my documents on the server (\\server\sharefolder\myname). But when I log into another computer I don't see my documents any more. I try gpupdate/force for that computer but It not work. I ran GPresult and see Folder Redirect GPO applied. It drive me crazy. Can anyone has any ideas what going on.

    Thank you

    1. Have you checked the application log in event viewer? if so what do you see?
    2. Have you checked the userenv logs? if so do you see any issues in there, here is a link for userenv logs:

      Hi,

      Use gpresult / RSOP.MSC to determine if all the policies are geeting applied or not......

            Thank you

                Userenv logging is not enabled by default.....

                To enable that:

                    Re: Folder Redirect GPO Problem

                    saying that computer1.txt is the log for the machine with the issues....

                    It appears to be a DNS issue, the following line is repeated throughout the userenv log:

                    GetUserDNSDomainName: Domain name is NT Authority. No DNS domain name available.

                    is computer 1 on a different subnet then computer 2?

                    If computer 1 is on a different subnet then computer 2 instead of using a traditional UNC path you should use a UNC path with the IP instead of the NetBios name.

                    Ex: instead of \\fileserver\userfiles you would use \\10.1.1.250\userfiles

                      I solved it. Thank you for your time
