Applying a group policy in a Windows 2000 Domain
Posted on 2003-11-21
All I want to do is to be able to apply a Group policy (that includes folder redirection) from my W2K Server to W2K pro client PC, but despite playing around for hours I'm missing something or getting something badly wrong.
Server W2K Advanced server networked with Client W2K Professional
What I have done
I have modified the 'Default domain policy' on the server to enable folder redirection on 'My documents', with the folders redirecting to the server hard drive to a shared folder called 'Users' including the %Username% variable, with full control permissions on the share and NTFS. I have run the refresh policy command for User and machine policies. The 'Default domain policy' is linked to the domain and the security includes 'read' & 'apply group policy' for Administrators. I log into the W2K pro PC as an administrator into the domain but the folder does not redirect because the same files do not appear on the server share as the one's on the W2K's 'My documents' folder.
