Hi,

I am new to the Citrix environment and having some difficulty trying to use roaming profile and folder redirection in Citrix.  Can someone help me with this?  Thanks in advance!

I have for Citrix server with load balancing for publish applications and a Domain Controller where users will be authenticated when they connect to Citrix farm.  On the DC there is a share folder for user roaming profiles, but for some reason it does not work.  When you users log on to the Citrix server (let say server 3) it will create a local profile on that Citrix server instead of using the roaming profile on the DC, when they log out any changes that made are lost when they log back into a different server.

Another problem is "My Document" folder redirection.  I used GPO to redirect "My Documents" folder on the server before and it worked fine, until we moved to Citrix that we having problem.  it does not keep the settings and pointing the "My Documents" folder to the local Citrix server under "Documents and Settings\username".  Also when users try to open a file from publish application (word, excel) it always point to ""Documents and Settings\username\My Documents" on the Citrix server where the user logged in instead of the central location on the FileServer.

Am I missing any step or what should I do?  Thanks, your help is greatly appreciated
