Folder Redirection Partially Working

I have a Folder Redirection Policy that is partially working. It seems that Application Data, and Desktop are redirected but not My Documents in some rooms. And in others My Documents, and Desktop are redirecting but not the Application Data. All of these computers are using the same Folder Redirection Policy so why are they not pulling consistent results.

Make sure that there are no conflicting GPO's in the processing order.

Run a GPRESULT to display the GPO's currently enabled for the user and computer. If the GPO for redirection is not there run a GPUPDATE /force

i would take a look at the permissions on the folders as well....make sure all your users have the approp permissions, and look on the event logs, it will tell you almost exactly why most of the time

The two errors that I am seeing are event id 1085 followed by event id 107. The reason given for the event id 107 is Access is denied. Which doesn't make since because the users have full permissions to there folders. In the event id 107 there are more details given. Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The event id error 107 also states:

The folder is configured to be redirected from <\\server.mydomain.net\users$\Administrator\my documents> to <\\server.mydomain.net\users$\john.smith\my documents>. The following error occurred:
Access is denied.

What should be going on is something like The folder is configured to be redirected from C:\Documents and Settings\john.smith\my documents to \\server2.mydomain.net\students\john.smith\my documents

It looks like it's trying to redirect the users my documents to my administrator folder. This is really freaking me out.

Actually,      " The folder is configured to be redirected from <\\server.mydomain.net\users$\Administrator\my documents> to <\\server.mydomain.net\users$\john.smith\my documents>. The following error occurred:
Access is denied."      Is exactly what is going on, but the user can not open my documents because they do not have permission to that folder, because they are pulling my administrator my documents NOT GOOD :( .  The folder redirection policy applying to them shows that my documents for that user should be redirected to \\server2.mydomain.net\students\john.smith\my documents though. I can not see any policy in RSOP that shows any other folder redirection.

In step 2 of the article it says:
When all users have logged off and then logged back on, and the updated GPO for Folder Redirection has been applied, use one of the following methods to stop Folder Redirection:

I have 1200 student users that the folder redirection policy applies to. Do I really I have to wait for all of them to log off and then log back on? That could take a week, considering all of them may not log on in 1 day. Is there anything I can do that doesn't require my users to log in for the updated folder redirection policy to apply?
