Hello,

I would like to configure a group policy for the domain that automatically redirects the users profile to a different drive on their local machine and i do not know how to do this. I am using windows 2003 AD.

Thank you,

this could get tricky, first read this

you would be better off using folder redirection and from there you can set the policy to sync to a local drive
