  • user folder location

    Currently all user folders are mapped using the profile tab in AD "HomeFolder", I just setup a failover DC and moved all the user folders. My question is if the PDC goes down do I have to then go in AD and cange the path to point to the new server?

      If user profiles are on Server1 and this goes down, then yes you will have to change the user account properties to point to server 2. Why not do this with folder redirection group policies instead?
