Folder redirection on a server that is not part of the active directory

can this be done?

I have a terminal server that i need to keep in the old nt4 domain for app legacy reasons,

is it possible that a user connecting to this server but logging on to the active directory can get redirected folder?

i can log on etc

but the policy that deals with redirected folders is only applied to an OU with the terminal servers in the new domain,

I cant add the redirection to any other OU as that would affect the users regardless of what server they logged on to.

    Accepted Solution

    Folder Redirection is not supported on NT4.

    You might try the following :
    a) Create a two-way trust relationship between the NT4 and AD domains.
    b) In the AD set a path for user profiles and use roaming profiles (launch MSA.DSC)
    c)Login onto the NT4 domain with an AD account.

    Hope this helps...

    I'm not sure I've fully understood : the Terminal Server is a Windows 2000 member Server in an NT4 domain ?
    If this is the case what I've said earlier is still valid.
