group policy question

Hello,

I need help troubleshooting a group policy issue.

I set up a group policy object on my domain controller to map the My Documents folder to a certain network share.

I linked the GPO to an OU that I made and put some servers in it. When I use Remote Desktop to log into those machines, the folder redirection doesn't seem to be working.

Is there something I am doing wrong?

Folder redirection is a user configuration.  You must apply that GPO to the OU that contains the users, not the computers.
