We are running 3 win2k servers and about 50 workstations. Two of these server are at main office with server01 being pdc. About three weeks ago our gpo was scrambled and we had to install a generic gpo. Everything has been running relatively smoothly. Two errors keeps cropping up quite frequently, however, and they only get logged for one individual user. This user is not an administrator.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Folder Redirection
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      109
Date:            11/21/2003
Time:            8:09:22 AM
User:            DOMAIN\<user>
Computer:      SERVER02
Description:
Failed to read redirection settings for policy Default Domain Policy. The following error occurred while accessing the initialization file:
The system cannot find the path specified.  

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1000
Date:            11/21/2003
Time:            8:09:22 AM
User:            NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:      SERVER02
Description:
The Group Policy client-side extension Folder Redirection was passed flags (0) and returned a failure status code of (3).


 All systems are fully updated and patched. Norton Antivirus Client is installed on every unit. The user name which keeps generating this error is also having a mysterious Exchange problem. It keeps delaying his emails for days or not delivering them at all. I am not sure, but I suspect these problems may be related.

I have checked the user's account and it has the same permissions/etc as other similar users.

Thanks in advance for any help, and a general thanks to all the great techs who share precious time and knowledge on these forums.

Here's are a few possible explanations you may find interesting:

http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=109&source=Folder+Redirection
http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=1000&source=Userenv

http://www.EventID.net is a often great resource for me (aside from TechNet)
EventID's can have several different sources and this website usually has some insight I didn't think of prior to my visit.

Thanks for the quick responses. Both of you help me very quickly and I really appreciate it. Also, one of sunray's links led me to discover my fdeploy.ini was missing. I was not aware of this issue. Thanks.
