First, I'll start off by telling what my setup is at the moment. We have an old storage server with about 500GB that is getting close to be fulling, instead of adding more space, they decided to just buy a brand new Dell Server with 1.4TB. All the accounts are using "folder redirection" to the old server. I need them to go to the new server instead. I used Backup Exec to "restore" the folders and their permissions and security to the new server. I've checked this and everything copied over just fine. I used this method because if you just copy over all these folders the permissions and ownership won't copy over and you'll have to give the all the user accounts ownership again.
My problem is, is that I need to apply a new Group Policy that will redirect them to a new server. On my test account, when I apply the new Group Policy, it doesn't apply it and keeps redirecting back to the old server. The only way I've found that it will go to the new server is if I totally delete the user account and start off with the new Group Policy. Which I really don't want to have to do with all these user accounts in AD.
I troubleshooted a lot trying to get it to recognize the new group policy. If I run 'gpresult', it clearly says that the new group policy is in effect. But it isn't going to the new folder redirection. I've even tried clicking "Force" on the group policy and it still doesn't go.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Also, all of this is on Windows Server 2003, and the new server is running Windows Storage Server 2003.
Thanks in advance!
