SBS 2003 My documents redirection for users at a remote site

Hi there,

We have a small remote site with 2 AD and 1 file and print server.
At the main site we have SBS 2003 R2 and additional app and AD server(s).

The link between sites is a slow link as its over adsl(upto 8mb) but were limited to the upload speeds of c. 768kbs.

Right now we redirect users my documents to \\servername\users\%username% and allow offline files in case of a server crash and or disaster.

We are moving from SBS 2003 soon but right now I would like to get users at the remote sites my documents to be local to them on the file and print server at the office.

Whats the best way to do this ?

I see in SBS that you can only apply the my documents redirection to all users so am wondering if I can do this through group policy for selected users?

Many thanks for the help.

Perry Hackshaw.

NB. We have the remote site on a seperate subnet and have created a remote site in AD sites and associated the new subnet with the remote site so users herelogon locally.
