My Documents folder redirection working for some users but not others
Posted on 2007-11-28
We just setup another client with SBS 2003 Standard. We setup a new domain from scratch (no Swing on this one). On the users' computers we ran the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard (F&STW) before switching from the old domain to the new domain, then ran it again once connected to the new domain.
Here's the problem: We used the appropriate wizard to setup user My Document folder redirection, but it's only working for some users. For example, I logged into Joe Schmo's computer as Joe Schmo and see that My Documents is pointing to the local computer. However, on Jane Schmo's computer logged in as Jane Schmo, I see that My Documents to referring to the correct spot on the SBS server. When I login as Jane on Joe's computer, Jane's redirected My Documents show there, too (I did this to make sure it wasn't hardware-related).
So, why would only certain users have their folders redirected, and others not? Why would some users be able to get see their My Documents when logged in on other users' computers, but the original user cannot?
Thanks for the expertise!
