Folder Redirection container not there in Group Policy Editor

i am trying to set up folder redirection on our corporate LAN.  We've got an Active Directory domain with a W2K3 Domain Controller.  I have opened up the Group Policy editor on our DC  but the Folder Redirection container is not showing up under User/Windows Settings.  I can't configure the GP for redirection if the options aren't there.  

Why is that container not there?  I need to know how to make it show up in the GP Editor Tree.  Please advise.

How are you accessing the policy?  Are you using AD users and computers or gpmc?

dchew, that's your problem.  For some reason those settings aren't available when using gpedit.msc.  Try gpmc.msc if you have the tool installed.  Otherwise, just right click the appropriate OU in Active Directory Users and Computers, and then right-click properties.  From there you should be able to edit the group policy and the folder redirection settings should be available.

bingo logo29a, that was the problem.
using gpmc.msc got the correct tool up and running with the Folder Redirection where it should be.  
I will be awarding you the points.  that was frustrating.

Why is it in one place and not the other?  Also, why are there two GP Mgmt snap-ins?
