Folder Redirection Group Policy unavailable

Last Modified: 2008-03-17

I use Windows XP with Zenworks for Desktops 4 and try to make a group policy starting from Console One. When I open the Group Policy Editor from Console One, I don't see the node "Folder Redirection" under User Configuration - Windows Settings. Is this not possible in combination with Zenworks? Who can help me?

You need the Folder ReDirection adm

download the following from Novell Cool Solutions website


Add this ADM to your Group Policy from the MMC and implement like any other setting. Please check the following:

1. How to use the Administrative Template for Folder Redirection

Firstly, you cannot see these settings unless you alter the way that the MMC displays:

Click on Computer Configuration, Administrative Template,
then for Windows 2000: you must click Views, then uncheck "Show Policies Only",

and for XP: View, Filtering, and then uncheck "Only show policy settings that can be fully managed".
You'll need to do this for both Machine and User, if you want to use both.

Secondly, any changes you make through the MMC are applied immediately to the workstation, and more importantly, they are NOT reversed when you close the MMC, so beware.
