  • Moving redirected My Documents to another server


    I have a Windows 2003 domain. The users have their My Documents folder redirected to a server share. The same folders are also available offline on each users computer... Now we have another server available and I want to move this files to another server as painlessly as possible...

    Quick google revealed that my naive first guess of changing GP for redirection and automatically available offline files (and manually copying server contents) will not do it.

    There seems to be the problem with offline files. The old local cache on workstations could probably be reset with csccmd.exe but logon scripts run after GPOs so it might be too late?

    Also there is a number of notebook users that might be away.

    How would you do it? Any advice/pointers are appreciated.
