Hi - I'm afraid I have another urgent question. I am setting up a clean SBS2003 build for a client over the Easter weekend. The server is built and CIECW, user accounts, printers and SP1 is scheduled for tomorrow. The client has requested that the following must be available in the "new" environment
All users 'My Documents' folder shoukld points to their home directory on the server and that data sychronises when the users connect to the network. So for exapmple 5Mb worth of data has been added to 'My Docs' and 3Mb worth of data has been deleted over the weekend, on Monday morning this change sync's with the server.
a) I will be of course adding the laptops to the domain the SBS way. (http://
Should I ensure that all computers are located under My Business / Computers / SBS Computers and all users under My Business / Users / SBS Users?
b) Then in GPMC create a new GPO in My Business / Users / SBS Users called My Docs and when I edit the GPO go to User Configuration - Folder Redirection, right click on My Docs and properties. Select Advanced and ADD - redirect to the user profile location? (I will have already setup user directories in the user account properties and also use login scripts)
If someone can confirm I am on the right path then great but then how do I do the 2nd part of the request. Syncing. As mentioned, if the user makes wholesale changes to his My docs folder on his laptop over a period of 10 - 15 days, when he comes into the office and logs into the network, his My Docs is uploaded to the server for backing up purposes. (These are SAP consultants and so data changes is vast and frequent)
Many thanks for reading this over Easter - holiday for some so 500 points all the way.
