Problem with Folder Redirection and Windows 2003. I have user "TestUser" in Global Security Group "TestRedirect" with a GPO "TestRedirect GPO" that has No Override and Block Inheritance enabled. In GPO Editor, "My Documents" under Folder Redirection is set for "\\Server1\e$\TestRedirect\%USERNAME%\My Documents" with "Create a folder for each user under the root path" option selected. I run CMD with gpupdate /force, log off, log back on, create "test.txt" and save to My Documents on a workstation and it's in My Documents local, instead of \\Server1\e$\testRedirect\%USERNAME%\My Documents. This is on Windows 2003. Not sure if maybe ADUC doesn't acknowledge the "$" variable? Also, with Folder Redirection should you create the folder that the path points to, or let the policy create the folder so it has proper ownership? Is creating the root folder and sharing it out first required? Any ideas?
No announcement yet.
