Hi all, I have a Windows 2003 installation and a number of domain users. I've implemented folder redirection of my Documents and have user profiles stored on the server. Currently i'm making changes to allow the users to be able to log into other machines on the network and have their outlook mail available. The way i'm doing this is as follows.
a) Using file explorer, copy the user's pst file from the C drive (Documents and Settings) to the users's Application Data directory on the server (as set up automatically when implementing folder redirection)
b) Open Outlook which then complains that it cant find the pst file but then allows you to specify the path
c) Specify the path to the server Application Data directory
d) Reopen outlook which is then happy with the new location
User can then log into other machines and pick up their mail. Question is, is there a better way? i.e through Active directory or GPO etc?
