  • SBS2008 Disabling Folder Redirection on 1 Machine

    Hi, i am new to the forums and fairly new to SBS so please go easy

    I basically want to disable all forms of Folder Redirection on 1 specific machine.

    I've been reading a few guides online on how to do this but have run into a wall, hopefully what i have done is not completely wrong.

    Moved the computer in question into its own OU
    Created a new GPO linked to this OU
    Enabled 'Use Group Policy Loopback processing' and set to Replace
    Enabled Block Inheritance on this new GPO.
    Set all Folder Redirections on new GPO to 'Not Configured'

    I forced an update on GPO on both the server and the machine in question.
    Now when i log into the machine it hangs on 'Applying Folder Redirection policy'.

    Im guessing i've done something/haven't done something to cause this.

    All help/feedback is appreciated

    on the affected machine should tell you whether or not your new policy has applied.

      Deleting the newly created policy allows the machine in question to login and NOT hang at the 'Applying Folder Redirection' section So my guess is that the policy is applying, its just i've done something wrong therefore its stopping the user from logging in.

        Depends on how many documents the user has. If (s)he has gigs of files then it is going to take a while to UNredirect them - causing the machine to appear to hang.
        Could it be?
        TIA
