My Documents redirections not consistent on workstations

This is a very small network with only 3 users currently. I've got SBS 2003 and I created a GPO to redirect the My Documents folder on the 3 workstations to the user's home directory. Only problem now is that it's only doing this on one of the workstations and on the other two workstations the My Documents folder is still pointing to the local disk. I checked group memberships and all that but can find nothing inconsistent with any settings so far. What am I missing? I'm not a GPO guru but this seems simple enough to accomplish??? Please don't tell me that GPO is flakey. Thanks!

You don't need to be a GPO guru because you shouldn't have created the GPO, but instead used the My Documents Folder Redirection Wizard.  

I'm wondering, though... did you create your users with the Add User wizard?


use gpupdate /force command on two workstations logoff and logon again with those domain user accounts, have you tried those user login on the workstation where its working? if not, do so and let us know

No, I created the users and security groups manually. Is that what's hosing me up? No, I have not tried loggin other users onto the box where the redirection is working.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
