Folder Redirection Error

Posted on 2006-04-06
Last Modified: 2008-01-16

I have recently setup a box running SBS with user's MyDocs Folders being redirected to a share on the server.  All appeared to be working fine, but on checking the event logs I see Event ID 112 occuring each time a user logs on to the domain.  As far a I can tell the permission settings are correctly configured for the folder in question.  The full event description is given below.

Anyone come accross this before - and resolved it?

Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The files for the redirected folder could not be moved to the new location. The folder is configured to be redirected to <\\Tpc-pdc\MyDocs_Network\%USERNAME%\My Documents>.  Files were being moved from <C:\Documents and Settings\domeara\My Documents> to <\\Tpc-pdc\MyDocs_Network\domeara\My Documents>. The following error occurred while copying <C:\Documents and Settings\domeara\My Documents\Adobe PDF Files> to <\\Tpc-pdc\MyDocs_Network\domeara\My Documents\Adobe PDF Files>:
Access is denied.

    Check that the user can access \\Tpc-pdc\MyDocs_Network from the start->run.  if the user cannot access the root share make sure the user is added or is apart of the group with access.

    Reset permissions on the users folder (<\\Tpc-pdc\MyDocs_Network\domeara) make sure the user is added at this level and then click advanced and check the box replace permissions on child objects.

    Try those first =)

    Actually, it seems as though the folder C:\Documents and Settings\domeara\MyDocuments\Adobe PDF Files has the problem.  You need to change the permissions on THAT folder as recommended in Mazaraat's post.
