Networked Computers still trying synchronising files on new installation of SBS2003
Posted on 2006-11-26
we have serveral computers connected to an SBS2003 server. Previously we had some folder redirections including desktop, application data etc. Amongst other things, it was decided the server was dual an overhaul and had been reinstalled completly.
The only folder redirection that should happen now is the one set up inthe wizzard for the users "My Documents" folder. However, some of the machines are still trying to sync the other previous folder redirections. (now no longer existing and causing an error)
Why are the PC's still trying to sync these old folders? They have all been connected to a new installation of SBS, connected using the connectcomputer wizzard, and the machines have all been set up using the wizzards from the main SBS management console.
I remember that they were prevously set up by editing the group policy object, but these would have all been wipped when the server was reinstalled. I have tried forcing the policy update and this seems to have had no effect. Am now out of ideas. Its not a show stopper, everything else is working, but it is an annoying message when people log off.
