Currently Policy redirects My documents to \\servername\staff$\%usern
ame% the user home folder. It works correctly. I just deployed DFS to the site and My Documents redirected succesfully, but when a new folder is either deleted or created it will not show (when using DFS namespace) until a manual refresh is done (F5 or view/refresh) It does not happen using windows explorer->create new folder under the home foldering mapping (not my documents), but it will happen if you create the new folder under my documents.
Two DCs, All workstations XP SP2, all have been updated with latest updates using WSUS, FileServer with DFS, single target, no DFS Replication, using it mainly for easy naming convention.
Mutiple Workstations, tested users with rights from domain admin to standard user.
All systems were running XP SP2, so I tried the reg edit suggested in this KB, and it worked.
Is the regedit required or am I missing something? If the regedit is required how do I deploy this to all my workstations? I was going to use regedit /s myregfix.reg from a share off a server but a standard user does not have permission to change registry (this cannot be adjusted). I created a GPO with the registry fix and it ran correctly under domain admin credentials. I attemped to run the reg edit as a machine start up script, with no success (loopback merge enabled).I can not deploy any third party registry editing utilities, ie desktopstandard.com products to edit the HKCU section of the registry through a GPO.
This is a sample of the registry file I am currently using, taken from the below KB.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
