one user problem; redirecting my documents on SBS 2003

new installation on SBS 2003, taking a p2p network into the domain.

i have one workstation/user that will not redirect the My Documents.  I have run the command at the server twice, and still no redirection symbols on the files or folder.

The My Documents folder is indeed pathed to the correct place on the server, but the redirection icons are not showing, so i'm assuming that the redirection (caching) is not happening.

any ideas on how to track this one down?

    The arrow that you are refering to are nothing to do with re-direction (well not much anyway), the arrows indicate that the folder is available offline - this means that you can edit files, disconnect from the domain, keep editing them and when you re-connect they automatically sync. This is useful for laptops but not so useful for desktop machines.

    If you want to make the folder available offline then you need to enable offline files (alternativly you might want to disable offline files on the other machines) Just get the user to log in, right click on "My Documents" and select "make available offline"
