I have a server named LufkinData1  and another server named SanData1  
they are connected with an OC3
I want my San Users to be able to use the Public folder which is on LufkinData1. But it look like the folder is on SanData1

Example:
They navigate to \\SanData1\Public\HRDocuments the Public folder will redirect them to \\LufkinData1\Public\HRDocuments.

This is a highly critical project so please any answers ASAP would be appreciated.

The solution could be as simple as placing a shortcut link to \\LufkinData1\Public\HRDocuments in the \\SanData1\Public\HRDocuments the Public folder.

You can try using subst, but that is drive based.

A Distributed File System (DFS) might work in this situation: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/dfs.mspx

Hi,

help about folder redirection--
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy

Description
Determines when folder redirection policies are updated.

This policy affects all policies that use the folder redirection component of Group Policy, such as those in WindowsSettings\Folder Redirection. You can only set folder redirection policy for Group Policy objects stored in Active Directory, not for Group Policy objects on the local computer.
