I am using a Windows 2003 Terminal Server and I am trying to use group policy to redirect the user's My Documents folder to thier Terminal Services home directory.  I have a share created called "Users" and I have created the hoem directorys for the users, and I have gone into Group Policy and redirected their My Documents to their Home Directory, however the My Documtents folder is not being redirected.  It remaind pointed at c:\Docemtents and Setting\[user]\My Documents, and since I an using roaming profiles they will loose thier documents when they log off.  Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong.   I would also like someone to tell me what security should be on the share and on the folders.  I am using roaming profiles and the security get placed perfectly on the profiles folders when they are created, however it's not being created properly on the users folders.

What is the error in the event view on the machine you are trying to log onto?

Go to the Group Policy's My Documents Redirection.  Click the Settings Tab and Uncheck Grant the user exclusive rights to my documents.

If that is not unchecked, windows is very fussy about the permissions it wants on the folder to successfully redirect.

You will have to give full permissions to the User Share.

You will have to give users Modify Permissions to the User folder (ensure its just to the folder and not "This folder and Subfolders"  that way the can write to that folder.  The users My DOcument folder just have full permission for The user and administrator.

It's really wierd.  I'm getting access denied errors, yet as far as I can tell the user has Full Access to this folder.  So does the "Domain Users" grou, which I don't want.  I even added Everyone and gave them full access yet I'm still having the same problem.  Also, when the user logs in they can't to anything in thier users drive, so it appears that there really rights issue here, but I can't see why.

The User has Full Controll of the share as well as the folder.

Go to the user share.  Right click and select properties.  Click the Sharing tab -- Click Permissions -- Ensure Everyone Has Full Control

Thanks 2Hype, I thought that security on the share itself was correct but that ended up being the problem.
