Folder Redirection Works Sometimes
Posted on 2003-12-08
When users logon to the domain their my documents and desktop are redirected as set by group policy. Redirection is to a local file server by \\servername\share\users docs, and not by mapped drives. If a user logs onto a workstation for the first time the redirection works 20% of the time. The user must log off and on the workstation several times before the redirection works. The user never has a problem again as long as that local profile on that machine is not deleted. If the local profile is deleted, then we experience the same problem. The only thing I can think of is that the policy is not getting pushed down from the DC over the WAN, and this is causing files to not be redirected. Any ideas or troubleshooting tips are greatly appreciated.
